Default Which rounded LiPo packs fit?

Hi,
Just about completed my build and I've gone to put my SuSuMu LiPo pack in there and with the lead configuration on there it doesn't fit.

The LiPo is curved and is shaped like a NiMH stick pack.

The power and balance leads both come out of the end of the pack and there is not enough room in the part at the rear of the car for both leads to fit and then head upwards, plus the balance lead on the pack is only about 1" long so it's stuck down near the drive shaft.

I'd like to stick with the curved pack style but would prefer one where the leads come out of the top of the pack on the corners.

Can anyone tell me what LiPo packs they have in their cars now that fit?

Thanks

Do the leads come out the centre or side of the pack? The correct ones for this car come out the side. You can probably still use them, just use battery straps instead of the door or tray.

This is the battery that I have.

Both sets of leads come out of the centre at the end which is the problem.



I did look at the strap / tray arrangment and thought I could zip tie them in that way but the short balance plug lead is a bit of an issue.

Can you post a link to a battery with the ones out the side?

I have these installed right now with the red lead going through the round 6 mm hole in the top deck. With this set up, I'm not able to swap batteries between heats. Instead I just recharge the pack between heats.

I recently picked these up, They should work.. although I have not tried them our of laziness and lack of need..

Thanks for the links.

As both are square packs, have you got the curved battery mounting arrangement or the one that is geared up for the open cell style with taping?

Any chance of a photo?

I'll try to get you some Picts tonight. I'm not using any of the trays, just using the straps.

I have a Gens Ace 5000mAh 40C (http://www.hobbypartz.com/98p-40c-50...-hardcase.html)

Fits great. I am using velcro straps to secure it. It works great. I can probably use a battery with less capacity. So far, with that pack, I have run it almost 2 hours and I still didnt hit the lipo cutoff.

I have the same problem, if your leads come out the end then they seem to get in the way. I think we need a pack with the leads coming out the top in the corners.

Hopefully a few people can post pictures of their set-up.

Double sided tape otherwise known as servo tape, usually a millimetre or two thick and black, gives some isolation from vibration. You can double it up for more isolation.
