When US RC drivers think of the company LRP, their first thoughts most likely jump to competition-winning electronic speed controls and motors. That mindset is rapidly changing with LRP-America now bringing in a slew of exciting products from LRP headquarters. One exciting new release, or should we say releases, is their Competition Line of Lithium Polymer hardcase batteries. These packs are built with HDS-2 (Advanced High Density Stacking technology) quality cells with 110C/55C ratings for the 7.4V packs and 110C/50C rating for the 3.7V 1/12-scale pack. The blue hardcases are transparent plastic so you can see the cells inside and the packs are wrapped in stylish LRP graphics. The Competition Line packs are all fitted with 4mm gold-plated bullet-style female plugs and the saddle-style pack even includes a jumper wire. LRP boasts maximum performance and long, consistent run times with these packs and a charge current of 3C. It looks like blue just keeps getting better.
