Hey guys, I was wondering where you get your battery packs and what kind/brand do you use.

Rule Number 1 - RenoRacer is always right.
Rule Number 2 - If RenoRacer is wrong, see Rule Number 1.

Ateeq - I order mine from NoBS batteries - I think they are in Babylon, N.Y. - you will see their ads on RCUniverse - they are not the cheapest but they sure make good packs. Delivery from the US to Canada is excellent and they seem to come through without a lot of Customs charges. I highly recommend them

I purchase brand new cells, by the box of 50 cells with tabs, through a local dealer and make up my own 4.8 and 6.0 volt packs complete with a universal lead. Its much cheeper than purchasing ready made packs and you don't have to worry about the tiny spot welds on the tabs coming loose with vibration as these cells are securely soldered in place. The cells are thouroughly tested and shrink wrapped making the best battery pack available.

I still have the 2000 mAH NiMh 6.0v 5 cell battery pack made up for you that you asked me for at the Flying Tigers IMAC, that I have been holding for you for since the event. I did send you a PM some time ago now. Do you no longer want it? Let me know please.
