Minimum Battery C rating for this setup

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hey all,

I have a 2WD slash with a 4300KV motor, 23T pinion, 86T spur. Running a turnigy 60A ESC.

I was wondering, Can I run a 3S 20C, or do I need a higher C (say 30C)?

You'll be fine. Keep an eye on battery temps 20c is the min. I run 20c on everything 2s and 3s never had any problems. Go have fun.

Re: Minimum Battery C rating for this setup

the desired c rating is dependant on the capacity of your battery. since you have a 60a esc, that should be your minimum continuous discharge of your battery. to figure out your continuous rating, take your capacity(c) and multiply by the c rating and divide by 1000. ex, a 4000mah battery with a 20c rating gives you 4000x20=80000/1000=80 amps. so you could use a 3000mah 20c, but it doesn't hurt to have a bit more than the minimum.
