Press release from Team Yokomo:
Yokomo announces the release of a new Silicon-Graphene based Li HV battery in its Racing Performer (RP) brand. The LiPo battery is specifically aimed at providing high speed, high power, and a LCG for 1/10 EP touring cars.
In order to compete at the top of the world, the pack uses 140C discharge Silicon-Graphite cells, with SLCG (Super Low Center Gravity).
Compared to the conventional LCG battery, it provides an even lower center of gravity and allows racers to install steel or brass weights under the battery for keeping the weight as low as possible, allowing the chassis to perform better, especially on high grip surfaces.
