I'd say split cell Li-po is the biggest break through in batteries since...well, lipo itself.

Almost makes a B44 worth looking at.

Just imagine how this will impact on car design.

Lipo saddle is a blind alley.

The change in car design will be based around LiPo sticks. They perform better, have fewer individual cells to worry about, and are easier to use.

LiPo's low weight needs a whole new vehicle design concept to perform without ballast. Saddle packs are only a temporary solution, they still need ballast in order for the cars to handle as well as sub-C vehicles.

I've heard a lot of talk about these batteries lacking punch. Plus they are soft pack which makes them very unsafe. So keep that in mind when you think your saving a few bucks. You always get what you pay for.

Funny knowing these aren't even on the market yet.

If these are anything like there 3200,3600 or 4000mAh HARD Case packs they'll have another winner on there hands.

Only the future will tell, Though I have had no problem setting up my cars to run beautifully without adding ballast. And I can't see why there are fewer cells to worry about in a Lipo "stick" pack, Mine all have two, How many are used in a split cell design?.........two?

Not even going to touch your comment on performance, I haven't seen any comparisons yet but I can't see any reason why a stick pack would be faster then a split cell.

That aside, how about a split-cell mounted on there edges,in the centre of the chassis with the drive shaft running between them?, or side by side across the chassis with the drive shaft over them, or stacked one on top of the other......

Plenty of possibilities, and I'm sure manufacturers with be looking at them all.

A friend of mine has one of their stick packs, has had NO trouble with it. I have a soft max amps saddle in my b44. Would like to try on of the yeah racing saddles as well. Much easier than screwing around with nimh. Weight is an issue though, I had to add weight in the rear of the car to help the handling.
