I bought 2 of them so they had better fit! I believe the larger Orion (5800 or 6000mAh?) might be a tight fit. I know Racer's Edge advertises their 5200mAh packs are a perfect fit for the Durango. I personally have had very good luck with Orion packs. They typically use Kokam cells which are arguably the best on the market. I know from personal testing, in an entirely different application, that Kokam cells are quite robust. Cheers!

Be careful! Any pack taller than 25mm will NOT fit! I have a 6000mah IP Intellect pack that is 31mm tall and no way would it go in.

Glad I can help! And please, call me Danger! If you are looking for a good deal I saw that A-main is selling their Pro/Tek saddle packs for $99.99. They are 45 or 50C and around 5000mAh. I do not know anyone who runs these but might be worth a look . . .

5200mah and 45C, and I run one, along with 2 40C 5000mah stick packs.

I'm happy with them. Great punch and no issues after 5-6months with the stick packs. If anything happens to them, ANYTHING, Amain will sell you a new one at 1/2 the price.

Yeahzz! The Team Orion 4500mAh saddle packs are 24.5mm tall whereas their 6000mAh packs are 31.5mm tall. Nice call on the height limitation. Cheers!

For anyone running on a tight indoor hard packed high bite track, the setup Matt Howard posted is absolutely dialed. The rear end needs to be a hair softer, but other than that the car is glued
