    OK all you electric guru's out there I am want to do my new Thriftway Too as a FE and would
    like to know what is the minimum "C" rating that I should consider running in my boat. It will
    be a 9 cell set up with approx. 5200mah batteries through a 200 amp ESC, 930kv motor set up.

    Thanks for all answers and opinions,

    Bill D.

    You might want to read the rule book for which group and class you'll racing with NAMBA /IMPBA some have restriction on the min/max C size you can legally use

    Bill the higher the C rating the better and since you're not running NAMBA it doesn't matter. I'd take a look at the Dinogy Graphenes (70C) and see if you can stuff one each of the 6000mah 4S/5S in series to get your desired 9S - https://www.dinogylipos.com/collections/5s-lipos/products/6000mah-5s-65c https://www.dinogylipos.com/collections/4s-lipos/products/6000mah-4s-65c?variant=21047104901

    Thanks Don, I will be looking into these as I get things better organized and get into the build
    of my Thriftway Too project.

    A couple guys really recommended Roaring Top batteries. Good output for the buck. I've had one pack get a couple cells with less voltage than the others. Only a couple of runs on it too. No probs with the rest of their batteries.
