I am currently using the dunford and am looking to try something else.
You can do it to the stock ones too, but need a 1.3mm drill to open the holes. Oil starting point: losi f32,5, r30

Hi all,
Has anybody else had issues with team Orion batteries? I have 4 carbon pro 6500mah 90c packs. 2 have minor swelling but the other 2 have split open. These packs have always been looked after, always balanced, always charged at 6.5 amps with a good quality charger, never dropped and never over discharged. I don't bash only race. So they are only ever run for 7 minutes most times.
They have between 15 to 20 cycles on them and gotta say I'm pretty disappointed...
Any ideas or comments?

Yeah, my saddles I used for my Desc and my friends stick did swell after few cycles. He got it replaced I just sold everything, including the rango.

Imho overpriced and tech outdated for the price.

Here you go, here is a photo, you have to get hardware yourself. You can grab aluminum bolts and nuts to save weight. Re-Use the bolts in the radio box.

Do you use bullet connectors, not the bird cage variety?

Do you have it mounted that way so that you can swap transponders? If not, seems like it'd be cheaper, lighter and cleaner to put it in the radio box.

I'm using the birdcages to directly connect the Esc to my battery, seems to work fine.

I've had 2 Orions (of 2) swell to unusable levels and 1 IP (of 2) also go round.

I'm not hating here, but I've also got 14 nano-techs without 1 single issue...

I also only race and look after my packs. I hope you get good warranty service out of Orion but I'd suggest selling them on while/if you can.

On the same note - A friend had 8, yes 8, protek batteries die in about 3 months. He's now converted to turnigy and not a single issue

Birdcages are for charging, after time they become a loose connector and will possibly melt you lipi by the connector,

I was referring to the techno center driveshafts (front/rear), actually. So TLR HD lightened outdrives in the center diff will be compatible with the techno driveshafts? Why is it different for the front/rear driveshafts?

Tekno makes the ball end (the side with the drive pin through it) bigger than the stock CVD's so it will not fit into the stock diff cups . You must get the Tekno diff cups to use their F/R CVD set ....
