I have an onyx 7.2 V 3000 mAh NiMH Battery. Trade for an 1800 mAh. This thing would make your go fast buggy be a rocket ship but it's too much for my scorpion crawler. wanted to trade

The mah rating will not chage how the rc performs, more of how long it lasts and the amount of burst amps its capable of.
When you say it was too much what do you mean? Broken parts?

7.2 volts is 7.2 volts for RC stuff regardless of Amp Hour rating, the only difference you are going to see is how long the battery lasts if you are comparing 7.2 volt batteries.

I run mine on 11.1 volt lipos with a 35c discharge and 1100 mah.

Thanks Eric, I had a response typed out and deleted it because I thought I was wrong. The MaH rating is only how long it LASTS, not how much power it has... that's more of a voltage issue.

To Much burst amps. Throttle is way too snappy. The 1800 I have work's much smoother. :???:

What ESC are you using? You might be able to adjust how "snappy" it is.

If you are seeing and noticing a difference the 1800 packs may not last that long, you might be hurting them by drawing everything they are capable of.

Better soulution might be to upgrade the parts(axles etc) that are breaking.

I turned Caden Lose with one of mine at the meet and greet, I think he was going for more then an hour and brought it back when the battery was dead. No worries when the parts are upgraded.

Pay to play :dunno:


Good luck with trading packs, and hopefully it will mask the problem for you for awhile.

What ESC?

Whichever one came stock with the scorpion, it's pretty bone stock. I'm new to the hobby and I wouldn't know the difference.

At least you didn't say D35. :lol: I played with it at moon rocks and funny rocks at the meet and greet last year. It worked great. Thanks for your input. :smokin:
I guess I could put in a crawler gear, 14 tooth instead of 20 tooth if I recall correctly. :hmm:
