Default 1/10 Buggy project li-po

I am working on a buggy protect and I need some help. I need to find a li-po battery that is less then 5" long to fit across the chassis. I don't really want to run split packs and I would like to use a big enough battery to work in my other trucks. Around 5000 mah. I looked at all the batteries at hobby king and I only found one that might work. Any other Ideas?
Thanks.

is there room to stack two 1s packs (for 1/12 scale on-road cars?) You can run them in series to get 8.4v...

There are packs for the new TLR 22 mid motor config that may work. Not sure the size/brand etc but I'm sure someone can help you out. Post some pics of the project!

This is only 3.78 inches. It's not a 5000, but it is 3800 60C which is more than enough.

Its actually a group project between a friend and I. I had two (or three) traxxas 2wd trucks that I wasn't running anymore and just for fun I thought we would take a shot at creating two mid motor 2wd 1/10th scale buggies out of them. I looked at saddle packs and they would work but I was hoping to find something big enough to run in series in my 1/8th scale buggy as well. These are the best one I've found so far.

I'm not sure it I want to run 7.4 or 11.1 yet. We don't have a 1/10 buggy class up here so I don't have to worry about adhering to any rules. When I get pics I'll post them.

Any other ideas would be great.
