For the (many) people who missed out on getting a Blue Chassis M03R in the first shipment, they are now starting to filter out to other outlets.

rcmarket in Hong Kong have stock now @ $120 USD.

And it probably wont be long before the other suppliers start listing them as well.

rc-champ have NO stock.....they've run out.

Neither. Orion 3200 is the battery of choice around here.

Ummm, he's not talking Lipo...you guys are.....he may not have that available as an option.

And since we're talking NiMH I wouldn't rush to use EP cells. They dont have the voltage that the Orions would.

I have to admit Fish I havent tried the Orions, I made an assumption that may well have been incorrect.

My only personal experience with the EP's has been compared to the IB's and my EP's certainly lacked in comparison with my IB's.

Although now I use neither......

Default No Lipo....

Yeah, I mean in Ni-Mh batteries.... I would buy Orion but I've heard good stuff about EPs..... And add this facts :long term usage, nearly 3 charges per day every 15 days ...... I've been running chinese Gmaxx 3600 and they're still performing good..!!! But I wanna buy something good now, no Lipo, no matched pls.....

Tony do you know if the MuchMore stick pack equalizer only works with NiMh or if it will work with older NiCd stick packs as well.

Is that Yeah Racing pack a direct fit because the edges are rounded like a "normal" stick pack is? Same theroy would apply with the new Trinity Intellect pack? Those seem to go a bit further and use actual stick pack "end caps", which would suggest they are indeed a drop in pack. The spec'd size seems pretty close to a Nimh stick pack.

Has anyone tried out lithium packs in an M04? I got my 2 cell Max Amps pack into my M03 with just a little help from my dremel. I'm wanting to see what that 2 cell will do in the M04.

Big Kid all of these Hard Cased LiPo packs are direct drop in for the M03:

Team Orion 3200
Core R/C 3250
Yeah racing 3200
Yeah racing 4000

These packs will also fit the M04, yes I've tested it, you just need to mod the battery holder with an extra hole and you're good to go.

In theory there's no reason why it wouldn't - certainly electrically it would.
To be honest I can't see it hurting them anyway. The discharge cut-offs etc are still the same - so why not!
