Default LIPO Saddle Packs for this weekend race

Are you going to allow the maxamps saddle packs to be run in the B44. I thought you only required for LIPO to be charged in a LIPO Sack. MaxAmps just came out with a hard skin casing for their saddle pack that you can use. Would this be acceptable?

Just curious as there are several guys running B44 that want to use the LIPO setup.

I think that Lipos have to be in a hard case and have to be charged in a Lipo sack. I have been running them for the last two weeks, they are fantastic!

Thanks

Hey whats up? I run a XXX-4 so I'm not sure on what everyone is doing with the XX-4. I didnt think it would be possible to fite a stick pack/lipo on one side in the XX-4 lol. And if it can happen I would guess it would really throw the car outta balance with weight distribution, since that car was designed for a saddle pack.

Right now I'm running the totally kit setup except I moved the rear link out one hole on the hub. I'm going to focus on it on Friday and try to get it dialed in some more. It feels pretty good right out of the box.

Only hard case lipos are allowed, those max amps are soft case and i dont think they have met roar approval. I dont think we go by roar rules entirely but i would assume they would have to be roar approved.


*Don't quote me on that, Ask rob betts he is running the race and it's by his rules he put in place.
