Reedy goes long with new 1/10 LiPo

Reedy LiPo

Reedy’s 6000mAh 70C Competition LiPo Battery is intended primarily for touring cars where capacity can be sacrificed in exchange for lighter weight and increased power output, HOWEVER, we prefer to think of it as a new 1/10 buggy OFFROAD pack for those looking to run an ‘old school’ full-length LiPo setup. Reedy’s high-quality, durable hard case helps prevent damage while 4mm socket connectors keeps power-robbing resistance to a minimum.

“Lighter weight allows for greater flexibility when adjusting weight distribution while maintaining the correct minimum overall weight. World-class power output thanks to a high average discharge voltage and low internal resistance makes this battery the natural choice for stock racers looking to improve their lap times. Modified racers will enjoy the added power as well – especially on medium to large tracks where extra power translates into faster lap times.”
