    How can I make a larger battery back for my E-MAXX without incresing it voltage??? Each of my battry packs for E-MAXX last about 13 minnets depending on how fast I go and how hard of hills I clime. If I add 2 14.2 v packs hocket up in searies and added a resistor it would limit the current so the 28.4 v pack would run out the resistor at 14.2 v would this work, or what ese would I have to do??:(

    use a harness to wire two packs parallel it will keep voltage the same and double mah

    You can also put a resistor.

    Wiring the two packs in parallel would be preferred. A resistor will build heat and also consume extra power.
  7. what about using a Y-harness to connect the two packs together.
