Dead Pirate,

What battery is that in your car? Looks like maybe a CRC lipo, but kinda hard to see specs of it on my phone.

Thanks

Steve

It's the 1S CRC shorty pack 4200 / 65C
http://www.stormerhobbies.com/cgi-bi...=cs&pn=CRC3703

The good thing about this pack is that it is the same size as 3 sub-C cells rather than 4 like the standard 1S packs, so it fits better in the l3. I had also tried off-road saddle packs, using just one, which makes it a 1S and are the size of 3 sub-C's as well, but they were taller, and put more weight on one side.
I had used the Speed-Zone 1S saddle packs, they are good.
The CRC pack is really nice for T-plate cars if your running 17.5T class, which I do.

And 8yrs ago there was no 1S saddle pack, or even any 2S saddle packs that you could split up, or a shorty 1S pack. So the only choice for the t-bar then was to use a standard 1S pack which as you noted made the car unbalanced and harder to drive thus not as competitive then. Thus my statement at that time was true, new products have made this more possible now.

Btw how did you finish at last yrs IIC with this car?

Pirate, I know this is an old thread, but I'm dusting off my old L3 and would like to just drive it for fun instead of getting all serious with a new 1/12 scale chassis. Are you still racing your L3 with the brushless/LiPo setup?
