I am posting this for a friend whose CRT pro got jacked, adn insurance is only going to cover enough for him to get an RTR version, I think he should wait, but how does the quality of the RTR compare to the PRO version?
Thanks,
Rod

I've attatched a photo of my Jammin from when I was running the TKO 2600 pack. The pack is placed on it's side, and the receiver drops into the box on it's side.

Running the VXR Li-Po now, with no trouble!

If you're not using Li-Po's, I would suggest a high capacity pack especially if you are using digital servos. Carolina's R/C has one manufactured by Team Helotes, a nice 2600mah.

Here's a link:

i do not have my buggy yet but the hump pack just came in the mail. will this pack fit in the battery box? it looks kind of tall.

See the picture posted right above your post. That's the exact pack you ordered, considering you got it from that link I posted.

Lay the pack down on it's side, and install the recieiver on it's side.

Looks like a tight fit !

Do you know if the team helotes 2600mah pack is the same format ?

It's definately tight, but everything fits perfectly. It was also nice to get almost 2 hrs. without charging.

That is the Team Helotes pack. Team Helotes assembles them for TKO Racing, CarolinasRC, and of course, their own packs. They're all the same 2x2x1 format.

I bought two this weekend. I am sooo looking forward to get them. By the way, Carolina's RC store's service is really great. These guys answered in minutes and shipped early monday morning. Not like a few other I won't name.

If ya do it like this it gives ya a little more room and the battery is easier to get in and out. I have done no mods for this to work.



I had my batt man make these up for me at the 1st of the year. They are a 3-2 combo and you can see how I put them in. Doing it this way leaves a little more room for the TX also. These packs are rated at 2700mah and when cycled they took 3032mah. I ran 3/4 of a gallon on one charge at the race for the cure at LH a few weeks back. Oh and with not much voltage fade either.

Here is a link to those packs.

Awesome man !

I still like Nimh better for receveir packs. The voltage cutoff on the voltage regulator of a Li-Po receiver pack will protect the battery but what happens to the car when the voltage is completely down ? no failsafe can prevent a runaway because of the voltage cuttoff, when someone will figure out how to correct this situation, I will stay with nimh

A throttle return spring to me is not a solution, it would take a very strong spring to get my throttle servo to move back in position if the power's down. The same spring would also probably reduce the life of my servo too...

Thumbs up VXR Racing LiPo

Here is the pic of the VXR Racing LiPo and Regulator installed in my radio box.
It's a nice snug fit and much lighter than the 2700mAh pack too.
Probably half the weight at a guess.
I have to put some foam on the left of it to stop it moving around inside the radio box.
They are very easy to use if you simply charge them with a LiPo Charger.
I have a great LiPo Charger if anyone wants one.
I have it on eBay but no bids yet

Steve nice configuration on the batt box. Keep in mind though that extra weight is not always a bad thing and the Jammin buggy is pretty light compared to others. Especially on that side of the car.
