just check dimensions it wouldnt even come close to fitting in the jammin. 55mm would be the longest length and that one has a length of 77mm...


here are the max measurements i know that will fit:
Length: 54mm (2.1)"
Width: 30mm (1.2")
Height: 43mm (1.7")

this is what i always ran in my jammins and it would last about 2 hour: http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...h-Normal-Style

i just ran about 10-15 practice and three 5 min heats with 2 min warm up and top off for the main.

measure it, youll be surprised its not. and you have to think about the wires and crap too. also i dont trust lipos for anything, you have to buy lipo safe servos (around 100 bucks a piece) and lipos dont last much longer.

oh if your new do NOT get a lipo. those can burn up some crap and catch on fire. get the one i sent a link of... it will last alot longer than 100mah lipo and you can run it down and never have to worry about it catching fire like ive seen SO many lipos do before. someone will leave the switch on and then puff there goes all your electronics and possibly your truggy.

the lipo was 1000 not 100. I do have a lipo in my electric. I would run a failsafe.

for lipo? if you go with lipo im not the guy to ask, im not a fan of lipo and never will be, i hated lipos in my slash so much i sold it lol

now for the NiMH batterys, i dont run a fail safe, they dont really work, i just use the one on my radio, but for a dead battery i use a rubber O-ring from an auto parts store aroung my throttle linkage and carb to pull it back closed if battery dies or comes un hooked.
