I recently bought my first 1⁄8-scale
buggy so I can race at the local off-road track, and I
have a starter box to start the engine in the buggy.
The starter box requires two 6-cell battery packs. I
always make my own battery packs using loose
matched sub-C cells for my electric race vehicles,
and I‘d like to do the same for the starter box, but I
don’t want to use expensive matched cells for it.
Where can I buy unmatched loose cells? Can you
Cheapbatterypacks.com and MaxAmps sell loose
unmatched sub-C batteries in different capacities, so
you won’t have to shell out extra dough and buy
matched cells for your starter box. And they are among
the few companies that sell loose cells in any quantity—from 1 cell to 100, while others only sell loose cells
in 6-cell or bulk packages.
If you don’t want to assemble your own packs, or
you have a vehicle that requires a special custom pack,
Cheapbatterypacks.com will build the pack you need.
Just select the number of cells, type of cells and the
configuration you need, and they will build the pack for
you. You can choose from a list of nearly 30 configurations, and if you don’t see one that suits your needs,
you can send them a picture.
build custom packs for vehicles with
unique battery configurations such as this X Factory
X- 6 conversion for the Associated B4 2WD buggy.
