I have the same battery in my Dynamite Quickfire box. It has one 775 motor, it will turn anything over without breaking a sweat. (2) 6 cell 3300 packs was a joke compared to this pack. It weighs nothing too. Can't beat it for the price.

got my lipo in the mail this morning, will be headed outside to charge it here in a little bit.

the way the boxed it was a little wired but it got here fine...

instead of packing the large box that it came in with paper/penuts.... the taped the lipo (came in a little computer parts bag type thing)(those dark gray bags that protect boards and chips and what not)
anyways they just packing taped it down in the middle of the box

but ordered monday got here friday not bad from down south california.

It will work very well smoke. Nice to see you ditch the 50 lb box. You will be very happy with the lipo in that ofna box.

the lipo charged up and balanced perfectly!
wraped it in some old tire foam and ziptied it in the box

the box lost about 12lbs! light as hell now! im super happy,
and it cranked over my alpha motor that has just over 1.5 gallons on it now perfectly no struggle!


and could not be happier for a 23.99 lipo! shipped!!!

I couldn't agree more I too had the Ofna Chrome Top box with a 12V gelcell for the past 18 months or so, just bought a Losi 4S Starter Box batt from Amain and let me tell you it will start an airplane if it had too! And yes it lost like 12 pounds too ! I'm glad for lipos !

i have the gray box chrome top the universal one.. and if i dont get a truggy box soon, im going to convert the motors over to the truggy box ones.

this box is very light now.. its pretty much empty on the inside. and its balanced perfectly now, no heavy end when in my hands.

witch makes it much better when having to walk a ways at big races!

ill get some pix as soon as the camera is done charging.

are those 550's or 775 in the box. I got the Ofna truggy box, wondering if Lipo will still last long with the 775's?
