Thunder Power RC is proud to introduce their first series of LiPo batteries designed specifically for use in surface applications. The all-new Race Series batteries further expand Thunder Power RC’s product offerings in a continued commitment to bring high-quality, high-performance and high-value products to RC modelers worldwide–including those in the surface market too!
Race series LiPo batteries feature premium, factory-matched cells housed in impact-resistant cases designed to protect the cells in a variety of conditions. They also offer a level of power, performance and reliability never before seen from NiMH and even other LiPo battery offerings in the market today. The first release of 2S 7.4V and 3S 11.1V batteries, in capacities from 3300mAh to 5400mAh, will deliver maximum continuous discharge rates up to 30C, offering sport and professional racers alike the perfect, drop-in fit battery for almost any 1/10 scale application–from on-road oval and touring cars, to off-road buggies, trucks and monster trucks.
Other Race Series battery features include:
- Choice of rounded, standard or large housings to fit almost any 1/10 scale vehicle
- Factory-installed main power leads (10- or 12-gauge) and connectors (Deans® Ultra Plug® or Traxxas® High-Current)
- Thunder Power balance connector and leads
- ROAR approval (except THP50002SPRD and THP54003SSRT)
- More margin (when sold at MAP) than most other brand LiPo batteries for surface applications
Sport Race Series Batteries
Sport Race Series batteries offer incredible value and performance beyond all other batteries in their class. 20C continuous discharge rate capable cells, 12-gauge wire leads and factory-installed Traxxas High-Current connectors make them the perfect drop-in upgrade for all Traxxas electric vehicles–brushed or brushless motor powered. THP54003SSRT can even propel the popular Rustler VXL to speeds of 70mph and beyond!
