lipo help .....please!

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
So I couldn't resist and bought the stampede vxl from Future shop for $319!!
It was an easy purchace because I'm already set up with a good lipo charger and a few batteries from a bad purchase ( china brand MT)I made some time ago. The lipos are brand new with only 2 cycles on them before I started using them with the stampede, they are 3200 2s 20c. After maybe 4 cycles with one of the batteries it crapped out! I will give it a full ballanced charge but when I try using it it has the speed and power of a Walmart rc... I checked it out with my multi meter and have 7.97 v if i check each cell one has 4v the other 3.97v. I tried discharging to 3 v then charged it with the same results.. I decided to open the pack thinking I may have overheated one of the solder joints when switching it to deans but its all good.
The other battery works great!
ohh, when i run it in the truck it shuts down after 2 min and flashes red for the low voltage shutoff..
I bought a venem 3c but if I could get this one going I would have 4 packs and the more the better..
Any help or suggestions would be great!!

Re: lipo help .....please!

What brand lipo is it? Sounds like it's giving a false peak but can't hold charge under load.

Re: lipo help .....please!

I guess its a no name brand because it doesn't have a name on it????? It came with a redcat rc.
is there anyway to test it and see if that is the case?
