Not entirely sure this is going to be an issue from what we can see on the pictures; but I agree this would be such a Tamiya thing to do. Thankfully with recessed tubes on the battery and low-profile plugs, none of this should be a dealbreaker. Potentially irritating... for sure.

On the M08, I was severely frustrated that they had not planned for a shorty pack.. no proper mount, no room for bullets. Then TCS happened and I went to weight my car and I was way under 1300g .. so I ended up having to run standard Lipo and still add weights.

Thanks for providing the link for the rounded case Protek battery. That should work well in kits that need or can take advantage of these types of batteries.

In the past I've purchased Reedy Wolfpack or Orion Rocket batteries for my Tamiya cars. The only issue with these batteries is they have been lower mah & C ratings. Here are a couple of links.

Reedy Wolfpack 3300 mah lipo - https://www.associatedelectrics.com/...0mah_30c_7_4v/
Reedy Wolfpack 4000 mah lipo - https://www.associatedelectrics.com/...0mah_35c_7_4v/

Orion Rocket batteries - https://teamorion.com/en/batteries-en/lipo/hobby-stick/

There are several other companies that make or sell rounded lipo packs, but I've had good experience running batteries from Reedy and Orion in my Tamiya cars.

Forget that... no round packs should ever be used in 2020 lol. My first M05 was the non V2 version and I remember taking a dremel right away to the battery compartment to square it out before I built it. Worked like a charm and that was an extreme amount of material versus this new kit stuff. I'm sure the battery tray will be fine for the lipo and minor modifying for the bullets if anything.

You shouldn't have to run a round shaped lipo in the TC-01, but you can run one if you want. But if you race in the Tamiya Euro Truck class or have older Tamiya vehicles, it is nice to have a battery that you can use in all of those vehicles.

Maybe I'm lucky and can trace one of these Tamiya LF 2200 batteries. It seems that they are nearly impossible to find in Europe. Would be cool if someone can help me!

​​​​​​Here is an update, maybe someone is interested...

I was actually able to get one of the LF1600 batteries from ebay. It costs me a little fortune (don't tell my wife...), but to be honest it is a nice and very well done little battery.
I am planning to realize some 3d printed copies of the LF battery's case and do my own 2200 mAh LiFePo batteries using four 1100mAh 18650 cells combined to a 2S2P pack.
​​I have already build a bunch of 2S and 3S LiFePo battery packs out of 26650 cells. A123 or nowadays Lithium Werks cells do a surprisingly good job in powering a RC car.
​​​​​So, i'm sure that the new selfmade 2200mAh packs will be pretty fine to get the TC-01 running decently with a Tamiya TBLM-02S brushless motor (either 15.5 or 17.5 turns).

Looking forward to getting this. I'm an F1 follower since the 1970s, but more and more it seems not as exciting as it used to be. So I watch Indycar and Formula-e too.

I don't understand marketing these days. Seems like the series are shooting themselves in the foot by charging for licensing.

I recall in the 1970s building many F1 cars (Tamiya kits!) before I was old enough to go to an F1 race. I was already hooked as a kid.

BTW, I built this in 1976 and recently restored it. By the time I got to my first F1 race (Indy 2000), this car was in the Vintage class.

Absolutely stunning. Kit like that today would cost $1k probably

The issue in question is not the profile, or the opening...
Its access to the TOP of the Lipo when its installed.
Its clear to me this will not be answered until someone has a kit assembled in hand with corresponding square Lipo that has bullet connector tubes.
Processing my PreOrder anyways.

I have a M07 and a standard battery fits with space for the plug-ins. The pictures seem to show the TC-01 will be the same.

Pictures of the battery end holders , however, suggest the TC-01 battery holder might be just a little narrower than the part for the M07, with less room for the connectors. Otherwise, maybe they would have used the exact same part. If that is the case, only official Tamiya racing would likely prevent one from using the M07 battery holders.

Wow, this thread is full of a bunch of babies. If the battery you want to use doesn't fit, it isn't against the law to modify the car to make it work. None of you would have made it in the early days of the hobby where you had to make stuff work yourself.

And don't give me any TCS BS either. That is a single event, and the entire existence of this car does not revolve around TCS rules.

Tamiya does some questionable things with their verticle integration (non-standard LiFe batteries, supplying a brushless esc while including a brushed motor, continuing to utilize JIS screws), but that doesn't mean you have to drink their weird koolaid. I get the nostalgia of Tamiya stuff, but the rc industry has moved on. If you want to use normal electronics you can, it won't end the world.

This whining baby doesn't like to have to modify to suit "industry standard" components, especially when holding Tamiya to a higher standard of kit build. Not to mention the hard earned money spent. Their product should be right on all accounts the first time. Its the standard that they have set.
I'd also prefer not to have to explain in the future, if I decide to sell, why I chewed up the chassis and battery retaining clips.....All speculation of course, because that it IS WHAT THE FORUM IS FOR!

...another useless contributor added to the ignore list.....
