Default Orion 5000 and 4800 lipo polarity

With all the discussion on the Orion 5000 mAh, platinum two and the reversal of the polarities. Regardless of which side the polarity is on, you should always check which one you are connecting. This is common sense.

For those who already own the 4800 and are buying the newer 5000, it is wise to know which side the polarity are. If you want to prevent errors, make yourself a dymo label (www.dymo.com) and attach it to the top plate.

With this size battery, you shouldn't be in a rush to begin with. If you can't top it off between races you will still have voltage to run if you run the stock 13.5, 17.5 and even 10.5 (depends on your driving style).

my 2 cents

my 2 cents
A logical way to deal with bullets is to make it so the + cannot reach the negative on the battery, but if 2 of your packs are swapped you can't even do that.

Hi All

Guy's can you give me a hand with a good rubber tyre setup for a medium to large size outdoors bitumin track running a mod motor ( BL 4t LRP )

A mate just got a JRXS-R & needs a hand with the setup .

Thanks

I have fixed it with my pack by opening it up and flipping it around in the case.
Then you do have to resolder the connections because otherwise they do not reach the holes in the casing.
Then put a lable on the pack with the right polarity and its fixed.
This ways the 5000 Mah pack has the same layout as the 4800 Mah pack and most other packs on the market.

Is the one-way even worth it to get? Isn't the spool option better?

I am still learning. I have a front one-way in my TT-01. Thought I read somewhere that the Losi one-way needed modification to make it work right, and for asphalt racing the Spool was better.

The one way requires you to use the short bones. That's the only mod you have to make and the bones come in the original one way package. One ways are great for high bite tracks and drivers who have a lot of setup knowledge under their belt. We run on a seriously high bite indoor asphalt track in Maryland and having a one way is a necessity if you want to be at all competitive with ANY car. For most of the outdoor asphalt tracks I go to in the season a spool is fine. I guess it all depends on the surface and your experience with tuning a chassis.

I have 3 type-r's now, 1 i run only in stock (13.5) and one i run in 10.5/open mod and one i plan to run in foam. I have almost no time during the week to do stuff so i have to be able to take it out of my box and hit the track race weekends . I love this car because of that. I have very little maintenance to do unless i smack something pretty hard.
