Still, I bet when you test someone else's pack and it falls far short it takes a herculean effort to keep from screaming it to the world.
Yes I do feel like sharing the info but I don't think it's appropriate for a Company to try and degrade it's competitor to try and get sales. With sites like this and word of mouth many have tried and like our packs as I do feel we offer some of the best performing packs with high cycle life. Were very fortunate to have a great partnership with our supplier and I have come to learn allot about Lipos and how different materials will affect them. This really helps us release some great packs to the RC market.

thanks again,

Thanks for the dimensions but I wonder how these dimensions are possible if AE uses 2 of there 2S hardcase packs. This means the packs fit on the side and the height will be 47mm and the width will be 50mm and the length 139mm

No pads in I imagine. There's your extra 2mm. I am wondering if it is possible to use the AE motor mount and radio tray pieces from the conversion it and somehow use the RCDP ultimate tray or the rc-monter tray instead? A yone think that would work? Can you buy the AE conversion parts seperate like the losi ones?

That's interesting. Can you please tell me what motor wind you run and if you have tried gearing differently when comparing the 2 packs ?

Actually all Lipos for RC come from China or Korea. It would be hard to make them in the US and have a pack that is priced competitively.

Thanks Tony. So the body has been changed to accept the 47mm height ? Can it be higher than 47mm ?

Even though SMC purchases cells from overseas, it is a US based company.

We could make a softcase 4S2P at 5400/40C that would have the following size. H45 x W44 x L133

If the body allows for a higher height than 47mm we could make a bit higher mAh.

BUILD IT!! BUILD IT!! AE is pretty darn popular around here, and I only buy AE cars, that is my choice, and your battery will be my choice since I have seen your involvement in these forums and your USA based. others will too.

Build it!!

You allready have two pre-ordered, i know thats nothing but hey its a start
