MX304 is correct, the picture shows a single pack is 7.4 volts but when run in series it becomes a 14.8V (4S) 5600

and at low weight and 5600 mAh no need to worry about a 10 minute or maybe even a 15 minute main.

I dont think that is right. Based on the dimensions of the pack there is no way they fit 2s 5600mah in each of them. The only thing that makes me question that is the funky looking balance tap they show a close up picture of. By the looks of it its for a 6s pack. I cant quite figure out what they have going on with that thing. The main picture looks like it shows only 3 wires which would be a normal 2s saddle pack, but that close up picture shows 7 wires which would be for 6s???? and the description says 5s???? WTF????

I would wait to get them until hobbyking gets their $h!t strait. Hope they perform well.
The balance tap they show is a 4s tap, but the packs don't appear to have a balance tap. I think they have it all messed up in the description.

I was just looking at those yesterday. I might order a few to try out. They'd be 380g per set and at 96mm you could stagger them on their sides in the tray.

I've been really happy with the 5600 and 6600 65C Nanotechs.

Imagine one of them in an scte with your battery tray. You could move the weight waaaaaaay back.

guys, they're saddles for 10th scale... each case is 3.7V... labelling is misleading, although no proper 10th scale racer would ever get it wrong tbh

the pic that shows the connector with the battery doesn't appear to have the same number if balance wires going into the connector as the separate balance tap photo has.

seems they do the 7.4V label per saddle pack on other packs they make on things that are truly 7.4V total as well:



I can definitely see these being a benefit possibly for guys who want more weight forward on the chassis for dual lipo saddle style setups if these are 14.8V.

So who is going to be the guinea pig and buy a set?

Look mislabeled to me...

correct,
thought there's shorty pack you can use.
shorty is like regular 2S pack, only around 1/3 shorter, and at 200g weight, they are 100g lighter.

they haven't put that in US warehouse though.

So, when is Tekno going to tweak this chassis into a 4x4 SCT? Just need to narrow down the width a bit to meet ROAR max. width specs, slap on some bumpers and body mounts, and it'll be by far the best 4x4 SCT on the market. Dropping from 4S to 2S battery and going from a full sized 1/8th motor to a 4 pole 540 motor should keep the weight to reasonable levels. If the truck came in at 6.5 lbs or less, race ready, tha'd be perfect.

The batteries are saddles they are labeled wrong I assure you, if they were 7.4 volts each there would be a small balance plug in the center.

Blair already ran on SC electronics, even with the full sized 8th scale car, and did amazing. So, really the only issue for doing the conversion as a side project on our own is how to make it the correct dimensions. Once I have it and have played with it a bunch, I plan to theorize about how I could do this as an end user. My guess, before doing so, would be that the main issue is to find/make slightly shorter suspension arms...though I imagine one would also need to check length requirements, which could make it significantly more difficult for an end user conversion.

Default finally done

I got my buggy Monday, I've been busy so I didn't get done until today. I weighed it and I was kind of surprised that it weighed 7.13lbs. I thought my setup would have been a bit lighter running a 3s pack.

Castle 2400kv motor 301g
Castel MMP esc 81g
Hitec Servo 61g
Gen Ace 3s 40c 5000mah - 442g

You could run 2x2S shorty 4200mah and it would be lighter and have more Watt hours. http://www.gensace.com/New-seriesGer...se-Lipo-Akku-2 these are 214g each.

Surprised to see it being that heavy though.
