I'd say probably the best way to currently come up with a 1s saddle pack that will fit a 1/12th scale is to hit hobby city and try to find a couple ~1500 mah or ~2000mah 2s packs that are small enough to run in saddle pack configuration. Then re-wire them as a 1s4p pack. The main problem you will have is a lot of lipo's come with aluminum solder tabs. Normal soldering technique don't work well with aluminum. Not sure how you would know which packs come with aluminum tabs and which do not.

Also, I know hobby city has a limited selection of loose lipo cells.

I plan on going over in the next 10 minutes for a couple of hours. I will spend time with the family before my trip tomorrow or I would stay longer.

I ran a few packs this evening and the car was fast!!! I made a spring change up front and dropped a few tenths. I have a few more tenths to loose I think but the car is real good right now.

Larry good luck getting into the 9's like I did tonight

I'll keep you updated while your out of town. I plan to stick with my current setup and work with tire sizes and ESC tuning! I'm starting to figure this new Tekin out. I played with some settings tonight and have a better understanding of it's vodooish software. As long as the magic smoke stays sealed up it'll be FAsT!!!

That is it Larry? I hope you have some more adjustments to make on that Tekin. As I still have some work to do on my KO and car. I know I can drop a few more tenths on my car. I guess if that was all you could do I should cancel my Tekin order now.

Yes.... cancel your order it's over rated. It's only good for .3 more tenths once you figure it out.... I can only turn a 9.18 now!

You'll be happy to know Drew turned a 9 FLAT. He better turn 9 flats, he's the IIC super stock national champion..... I think he's getting slow in his old age.
