TC3. If it is the same height then that should be fine.

If you have a TC3 then it should have slots in the battery tray for the bumps... Meaning they will help keep it in place. I wouldnt shave them off until you make sure it fits in the chassis because I think it should just fine.

Yeah, it has slots in the chassis. I wasn't planning to make any changes until I see how it fit. Thanks for the tips with this pack.

The slots in the chassis are for the bumps to fit into. Thats why companies put the bumps on hardcased lipos. I would personally leave it be.

Hi all! I own 5 Zippy LiPos, all of which work fantastic. Ordering them straight from a Chinese retailer is the reason for the price break. I also use their Accucell- 6 charger ($40 charger!), and voltage reading device (less than $4) that will give me a read-out of the voltage of each individual cell. They all work like a champ! I haven't run accross these hard case lipos yet, but I'll be sure to include a few in my next order from them. I plan to order two additional chargers, balancing plugs, twin charging adapter (3, one for each of the chargers), and more of their voltage read-out gadgets. FYI, I also bought 10 pair of their Deans-like connectors, and silicone wire. It's all great stuff! Ordering from them simply eliminates the American middle-man, and fancy logos.

I am a fan of hobbyking now!

actually the zippys are great batteries, and they are priced very low. same with their "deans" connectors, 10pairs for $6 i only use them now. they are as good as all the other connectors. only downside is that they dont fit any other deans plug what i know so if you use them you must use them only on all your stuff, but for the price its worth it!

Sure they do. I have plugged multiple zippy packs with their Deans look-a-like plugs into regular deans plugs. They fit just fine.

I definitely don't work for Hobby King! I placed an order with all the bits described in my last email for the price of two name brand (1/18 scale) lipo packs. I'm happy with my order, and the quality is surprisingly good. It's rare when a seemingly good deal actually turns out good. I'm going to order those 4000mah packs for my kids' cars. At $27 each, they are cheaper than sub c cell packs!

I ran them today for the first time.I did two cycles and looks very punchy with much more runtime than my Yeah Racing 3200 and excellent performance.I could say this is the best lipo i have ran so far.I don't know about the lifespan but for 33.00$ shipped i don't care .
