Safety

Cells must be operated within their specifications ( temps, volts, charge rate )

Max cell voltages; lipo 4.23v, life 3.65v, nimh 1.24v

EDITORS NOTE

In all even classes you may run one bank of cells or if you have two motors you can split the pack into two, ( ie two banks of 4 cells in an 8 cell setup one for each motor ). Life cells are a bit special you may not run more cells in series than is specified for the class.
