Ok guys, I have read through all the posts here about boosters & receiver packs & still am not sure what I need to go with.

I am going to be running 13.5, 1 Cell & I have a Tekin RS speed control. I really do not want to run a recevier pack & have something else to charge but if that is the best way to go I will.

Do the boosters work OK now with the Tekin RS's? Can you still have the cut off safety on?

My car is all set minus the booster or receiver pack & I want to get which ever ASAP.

Thank you guys!

Personally i went out and bought a Losi 7.4v 300mah battery and wired it with a switch and a charge lead so i can leave it plugged in to the Rx and still charge it (when the switch is off). I can run it easy 6 four minute runs without charging it. Total cost...$31

buy the novak smart boost and your set!!! if you want a little extra left side weight then buy a receiver pack!! that would be the only reason you would need one!!!! smart boost is a little bit more expensive but totally maintenance free!!!!!:thumbsup:

Shaun, my dad and I have ran both, and I am running a receiver pack with my RS. Talk with Kevin B as he has lipo receiver packs for 6 bucks, charge them before you get to the track, don't have to re-charge them all night.

the ohp booster has been working great for me for weeks and it's easy to hook up.

Agree with Cory... Ran the Rx pack for awhile, changed over to an ohp booster and haven't had any issues to speak of.

I spoke with Ty at Tekin last week and he recomended TQ Cells booster, so that's what I bought. I put in the car on Thursday and it works great, and it is so easy to install. I would definately recomend this option to anyone.

BTW: Thunder Power 5000 40c, 13.5 Duo, RS Speedo.

Ran RX packs for a while, but have since switched over to boosters. Much easier, no extra pack to charge. have used both TQ and Dimension engineering boosters.

you might want to have an extra booster handy. they ohp's and tq's have been known to go up in smoke for no reason. i'm not saying their bad but i've seen a few of both have this happen and i do no that both suppliers will stand behind them should they fail. just send them back to them and they will replace them. great service by both dealers. :thumbsup:
