It might help to look at discharge voltage in terms of capacity. I'd expect a 4900mah pack to do a fair bit better than a 3200mah pack just based on capacity - at 30A it's 6.1C vs 9.4C (or 7.1C for a 4200). And you have more charge(%) left after the same time with the bigger pack.

I LOVE LiPo. Instead of being slave to my Nimh battery, I just charge my 6 sticks of lipo at home, I am ready to go when I get to the track. When I race, all I use is one pack. I don't even change the battery.

All I need is some good saddle Lipo pack for my xx4 WE.

dont hold your breath. a few pages back they said no plans yet to make them. not enough demand, which is true as stick pack for bashers outnumber saddle packs prob 100 to 1.

Looking forward to buying a saddle version . The off-road 4w season will be very popular this fall . I will be using Li-Po saddles packs.

Orion`s or what ever is available ...

Is a 3200 pack enough for a high drain 19T race? Or am I better off with the Orion Platinum? Thanks.

Yes I have ran my 3200 back to back ( without topping it off w/a charge) in 19T and only dumped on the last lap (Volt cut-off kicked in). So a 5 min race will be nooo problem.

What would be the temperature on these packs after you run it? I saw the instruction that came with it said dont go over 160F. But what would be a reasonable temp. Since there is a case over it, would the temp reading be accurate?

I've run 2wd buggy stock, Touring car w/ 4300 or 13.5 at 7-8 minutes, and have never felt the battery much warm to the touch. I don't know about foam/mod/tc, but I haven't gotten these batteries to break a sweat.
