Battery requirements for Axial SCX6

Capacity: The Axial SCX6 has two large adjustable battery trays, so there is a wide range of battery options. How to estimate the required running time: For the RC crawler, 5000 to 5500mah will provide 60 to 90 minutes of uninterrupted power, while 8000mah will provide more than 2 hours.

Voltage: The SCX6’s power system is capable of handling 4s lipo, so the optimal battery solution is to run two 2s lipo’s, which not only meets the voltage requirements, but also balances the center of gravity of the vehicle on each side of the chassis.

C-rate: SCX6 is a Crawler, it doesn’t require high peak power, therefore, in terms of C-rate, above 35C is enough. We should focus on running time, durability and battery life.

Soft case or hard case: Hardcase is more suitable for Crawler, because it can provide drop resistance and waterproof.
