Man I don't know what I was thinkin, thanks... No I will not be running 8s.. I'm gonna run it a two 3s,11.1V 6s series.. I got confused thinking this was a 3s 11.1V. This pack by itself is still awesome. lol it happens !
I purchased this Turnigy 5000mAh 4S1P 14.8v 20C hardcase pack from Hobbyking about three weeks ago, and I finally tested it this past SUnday in my Rustler VXL with the Castle Creations 2200KV Brushless. I'm running a 10 amp BEC for the steering servo and ESC and Motor fans from it. I ran a solid 13 minutes of back and forth down my street which is about 600 Yds on one speedrun with no problems. The pack was a little warm, which is expected but it was a great investment. It fit a little tightly in the Rustler, but the tighter the better. I'm going to purchase another one and run it at 10s 10,000 mah..Woo hooo..For the price I have nothing to lose...Great pack though over all !
You mean 2 of these in series..that's 8s not 10.
Also, the castle 2200kv motor running on 8s lipo is definitely not a good idea. Heat is your enemy here especially during hot summer days.
P.s keep fire extinguisher close by if you do decide to complete your target.
I bought 4 of this for my large tricopter, I know that the hard case add a little weight but where are you going to find 4S 5000mAh batteries for $22.37 this is even cheaper than a 3S battery of the same size, until know they are working perfectly, really happy with price and I'm amazed how long they lasted in stock

I purchased this battery for my Traxxas Slash 4x4 with the Mamba Max Pro setup. I run a 18/54 setup and this battery makes it scream down the road. It's an excellent battery to use especially for bashing since its a hard case. For the price, you really can't go wrong.

I have bought several of these and all balanced perfectly and had tons of power. I have never gotten a bad pack. I have been using them in 1/8 buggy/truggy electric conversions with great luck.
5 stars for sure on price, power, and reliability.
