Default B44 stick lipo mod ?

Gonna be getting a B44 here shortly, and wanting to run stick lipos i it.

I thought i seen a B44 in the for sale section a while back with a chassis for stck batteries, may not have been a B44, but im almost sure it was.

I have searched here, as well as a couple other forums, and cant really find anything.

Is there a chassis available for a stick batt. configuration? Has anybody modded a B44 to accept one.
Looks to me like all that would be needed to do is move the servo over to the side with the motor to make room.

Im only looking to go this route, as i have 6 perfectly good 2 cell stick packs, and am really tryng ot to dump a couple hundred into some new saddle packs. Plus it would be easier if i could run the same packs in both my B4 and B44.

If anybody has pics or info i would appreciate it.
thanks in advance.

The original Jconcepts BJ4 was a stick pack car. There is no option to convert a B44 to a stick pack.

converting, if even possible, would be more involved than just buying a $80 saddle pack to run in it.

Either get an original Bj4 or sell some of those stick packs and buy some saddles.

looks like you need to buy some saddle packs because the b44 is specific.I use the reedy 5100mah 35c packs in my b44 and it flies and is very well balanced.

I paid like $70 for my IP 5000mah 35C saddle pack form HK on e-bay and had it to my door in 10 days. Runs my 5.5 just fine.

Converting the b44 to run sticks would pretty much defeat all of the engineering that went into designing the car.

If you really don't want to invest in new batteries for the B44 just go buy a Kyosho ZX5 SP. You'll save yourself some cash and still have an excellent car.
