It looks like it will fit a T2. The 4800 was the same thickness as a regular sub-c pack. The 3200 looks like it is the same thickness too, except that now it will sit down into the chassis allowing it to clear the bulkhead. We hope it does at least. Rick said he was told it would so we are really hpoing he was told correctly

How many of you actually get to race LiPo at your local club or track? What classes?

We cant run them at my track b/c they are perceived to be dangerous. They are having an enduro race next week though that they are going to let us use them at.

We can run them at my track.I have loved it so far with ZERO problems for about 2 months so far. I race in a 19t class with the 4800 and my SS4300, and also stock with a brushed 27t.

I think everyone now understands how it works and fits.

To equip the battery with + and - connections on opposite ends of the would result in a battery that is longer than six side-by-side NiMH cells.

still wont fit fk04 eh?

Is it feasable to run this pack 3 qaulifiers and a main in one night race? At 90$ thats about 3 nihm backs of the lower matched level. Sort of inline with the spec theme of this pack...So its starting to look almost affordable if, if it can be used and abused. Can it take the recharging and discharging in a quick paced evening race? Or would there be time to get it recharged?
