I bought it and returned it.

IMO, it flat out doesn't fit. I'm one of the individuals that wrote a negitive review of it on AMain.

I run the Losi Lipo and regulator with zero issues.

i compared to the standard packs and its about 1.2oz heavier.

Blower Uper A: just wondering if anyone is getting some long run times and fitting it into the box..

BradSLC:im hesitant to run the lipo because (and im not sure exactly how it works) im affriad of over dicharging and if it has the cut-off then im affriad that it will just shut off and run away or what ever it wants to do.

Please if you have any info i may look to get the lipo and the reg. but im just a little scared of other problems

If you make your own you may be able to configure it to fit the losi box

I have been using this same pack in my 8ight for 6 months now and just transfered it to my 2.0 3 weeks ago. It is a very tight fit, but works. It had rubbed the shrink wrap off in several areas. I added black tape to the effected area and fit it in the new battery box better. I am think of heating the lid and/box in the future to see if I can get a better fit.

I like the heaverier wieght of the pack over a lipo. I ran a HT Batteries and regulator prior to this battery pack with no issues, but when I switched to the heavier battery, my car seemed better balanced handling wise.

I have a couple of Losi regulators for sale. One has been mounted to my buggy but never used. It is back in its original package and I have another in a never been opened package. PM me if interested.
