If you buy the Team Orion Avionics Stability Balancing System you can modify the wire harness to fit your battery.

This web page will show you how.

Which lipo cutoff are you using? Hopefully not the Novak or Liposhield, because neither of those has worked for me.

I have two Novak XBRs with internal Lipo cutoff and two external Novak Lipo cutoffs and all have worked perfectly for me. I external is 2S and 1 is 4S.

Well, I was saying the Novak cutoff and Liposhield don't work with the Traxxas Slash, which I know $Tmoney$ has.

http://www.teamnovak.com/tech_info/i...tes/index.html

Now that I read his post again, it's not clear whether he's using it on his Slash or not.

The Novak cutoff should work with everything else.

i havent ordered any cutoff yet but im wondering how it would work with an orion lipo since they use the tap hole instead of the wire coming out of the battery what one has worked with the slash?

Both cutoffs work pretty similarly (although again, on the Slash the Novak and Liposhield won't work very well, causing throttle to stutter badly).

The cutoff has a plug that goes into the receiver. The esc plug that normally goes into the receiver goes into the cutoff.

Lastly, the cutoff has a positive and a negative wire that goes into the ESC red and black outputs.

The balancing port is never used.

What does the balancing port have to do with the cutoff ? The cuttoff goes between the esc and rx .
