I used to run Stickman's 2500 AA 5 Cell pack, and by far, the best NiMH pack ive come across. Ive made the switch to LiPo's now, but for practice and just messing around at the track, its the NiMh's that keep me going.

Ive never had 1 go out on me ( Own 6 to date ). They hold a charge EXTREMELY well, and till now, Ive only had 1 shrink wrap come loose ( Mainly my fault ). And that's it.

I couldnt recommend these packs more.

A+++ in my book.!

The proper name for the 2+2+1 is the SRP2500-MUG. It is a 5 cell AA pack designed initially for the Mugen mbx-5 however it works in a lot of cars.

The 8 cell flat packs are for Transmitters. There is a receiver pack page under the products on my website that shows all the receiver packs and their deminsions.

I have seen people use them in the 808 buggy and they switch the battery side and the reciever side. I have managed to cram one in my MBX-6 but its a tight fit. If you ask me its worth the run time to take a dremel to your radio tray.

I also make a 1600 flat pack expecially for the 808. SRP1600-FLT

same pack here. i cycled it 6 times with a charge rate of .5 and still got it to take only 1508 mah. i'm thinking of slamming it at 2amps to see if i can get more out of it. i bought the orion 2300mah batterys for my m11 a year or so ago and they would take 2400 to 2500mah, and i could get 5 weeks of racing out of them, so i'm hoping that this pack will come to life. i've yet to run it in my car though.

So your going to put your receiver right next to the hot motor...? Ummmm... please dont try that on a hot day.

Ever heard this one before.. "I don't know what happened, it just ran away!". LOL!

I don't think you would have a problem with heat from the motor. The battery box is made of plastic and I have never even seen them warp or melt because of heat. The new MBX-6 battery box is even closer to the motor and I have my receiver in the battery side near the rear. I have had no issues with it overheating. But if you wanted to be safe I could see a concern here. That is why I started making the 1600mAh flat packs for the 808 and the MBX-6, so people would not have to deviate from the stock setup.

I am using a 3+2 or the SRP2500-LOS, designed for the Losi 8ight. Here is the pic. I removed the little wall between the rx and battery portion. I use a small receiver also.

Oh, I forgot you have to cut out a portion of the box lids so they will fit back on. Like I said its a lot of modification but I just leave it in all day without worrying about charging it. Last time out it ran 3 quals, a 10 min B-main, which I won, then a 30 min A main, without a charge. I run 2-Futaba 9351's. The 9451 in the pic had some problems.

In the ATL it is humid and hot during summer. No problems in that location at all.

Good Luck!

Stickman,
Thanks for the pics. Are your products available via LHS/Dist. or direct from you only?

Price on the SRP-2500?

Stickman battery packs are available through A-main and Mod Hobby. If you go to www.amainhobbies.com or www.modhobby.com and type in stickman in the search box it will bring all my products up.
The dealers page on my site www.stickmanrc.com will take you directly to them as well. Depending on where you live they might be at the LHS. I have shipped them to Hobby Express in TX, and Dalton RC in GA.
If you want your local shop to carry them send them to my site and they can request to become a dealer. Thanks
