cheers congrats about ready cant wait to read bout it in xrc.
The orion 3200 lipo fits both cars beautifully. In your part of the world, I'd go with the lrp, since you'll probably get better support and service from them from your area. Either one is great. For us in the US, Novak is the most popular since its at home, and their service is good. The LRP service for US is not on the level of Novak.

The Orion 3200 does fit in the Mi3 and should fit in the Mi2 EC as well. One thing of note with the Mi3 is that if you use tape, you should not only tape it length wise, but you should also tape it across its side. This will make sure that it doesn't shift to the side and hit your belt.

As for the esc, I use a LRP Sphere. Just the regular version. I could have 'upgraded' to the Comp. version or I guess the 2007 version, but here in the US at least, if you find a LRP speedo that actually works, you don't go fiddling around searching for another one. You best just be happy. Mine works, doesn't have a cap to find a place for, and doesn't have a LiPo cutoff to fight with, so I'm happy.

Or you could do what we do: make plastic cut-outs of the exact size of the battery slots...make sure they fit in nicely into the slots. You dont want play. Then clean the pack, and install it in the car in the place you want to put it...as it sits, CA glue the plastic cout out rectangles from the underside of the chassis onto the battery. Wait a minute till the CA dries, and then remove the pack by slightly pushing it up and out...it pops out easily, and no tape needed. Once its in, the plastic rectangular cutouts at the bottom hold the pack in place, not letting the pack slide forward or sideways, and the bulkheads keep it from popping up.

You have the same problem with the EC also.

Take a look at your Mi3 chassis, look at the battery slots. See the rectangular slots...take a piece of hard plastic sheet, 2mm thick, and place that under the slots. Take a marker and from the top, draw a line around the edges of the slots into the plastic, and you should have a marking of the size of the slots on the plastic "sheet". take Scissors and cut out around the marking, and you should end up with a rectangular piece the shape of the slots. Take that piece and place it inside the battery slot. It should fit in snug inside the battery slot. Make two of these. place them in the slots, on the 2nd and 4th slots(front rear to front) and make sure they dont slide down. Place the battery in the car. Well, all you need to do now is glue the plastic holders you made to the pack and they will retain the battery in place. Evey time you slide thepack in the chassis, those "blocks" attached to the bottom of the pack, will fit in the battery slots, and thuse keep the pack from moving front or back, or side to side. It locks the pack in the chassis, and the blkheads keep the pack held down. You never have to use pesky tape or straps...it really keeps the pack locked. All you need to do to remove is slightly push it up and out, and there it comes out...
