This is slightly off topic, but refers to the Lipos. Im new to lipos and getting back into RC. Im looking at Team Orion carbon molecular 45C 5400 mah packs. Does the 5400 mah refer to capacity (run time)? bigger number=longer run time?

The C relates to the amount of current that the pack can deliver over a period of time. For all intents and purposes, a higher C value is better than a lower, however there is no standardized process for measuring C values.

I haven't run Orion packs yet, but I run 40C Pro-Tek packs. I definitely have more oomph than the guys running 25-30C lipos at my local track (stock class).

I was actually looking to get either the Pro-Tek 40C or the Orion packs. RCMart in HK has the 4600 mah 45C Team Orion packs for $65.90 a pack vs. the 5000 mah 40C Pro-Tek packs from Amain for $79.99. My local track only runs 13.5 super stock.

I believe the 4600 has a height of 25mm, so it should work fine. For what it's worth, anything over 4000mah should be more than enough, even for 8min mains.

my orion 4500 touch a maybe 2mm the slipper nut and the rear cvd.

but once it's used a bit, there is ok and do not wear much more.

Please note, i have a DEX410 2009 with old motormount and old slipper mount.

I used double side tape to fix the lipo on the chassis and removed the plastic lipo retainer.

What kind of servos are you guys running? I have a spare Futaba BLS451 (.1sec and 147oz), and I wanted to know if this will be enough.

If not, I've been itching to try one of the Savox offerings.

That's the same one I'm running. Works really well for me though I am tempted to step up to the BLS352 for some more torque.

What's this Savox that you're referring to?

I had alot of trouble getting my SMC 4900 to fit in my dex410r. I had to shim the motor mount up to make it fit

Savox SC1258TG, 167oz/in, .08 sec. and $60. They're pretty popular with the european guys and I've seen nothing but positive reviews. The only complaint that I've found is that they're loud.
