......those packs are very "slim", they won't have fitment issue.......

BUT

.....are not even close to the performances of the orion's lipo......

I dont know about all of that. Let me see, Maxamps 4000, Orion 4800, obviously the 4800 wins. But Aus, dude, if you are looking to get a Maxamps pack that will have you running forever (even longer than orion), then get the 6000 hv. Less expensive than the re-badged Orion, longer run times AND durable to boot. My Pro 4 got run over with a maxamps pack by a regular car and it is still going strong almost a year later. Orion is probably bullet proof, but Maxamps is coming in a strong second and have MORE mah variances to choose from.

LOL. I'm considering retirement. I can't fight off every cheap ass, because that's most of R/C's crowd I guess. :-\

Cheap? Um, have you taken a gander at my signature? What makes you call me cheap? Because I have one pack? Thats all I need. Beat down, nah, you my dude. You bring the fire. For the record, I like to be referred to as "frugal".

All in good fun, if you don't spread the word to the masses who will? Hey if change one persons mind that's all that counts. I am considering picking up an Orion Advantage so I can run Lipo's, I have the MMR CTX-C wich will do lipos but at 1amp it would take a while. Aus jd, didnt mean to jack your thread, for the Mi2 the nice thing about the Max Amp's packs are they will fit in your car without any mods, I am not sure if the Orion 4800 or 3200 will, but since syndrome and I have talked about this subject before I know you can mod the case of the 3200, and he is right that having the case helps protect the cells

Thats how its supposed to be taken, in stride. Syndrome is a funny dude...kinda gay, but still funny just kidding, he isnt all that funny . Seriously, if one has the pesos and is going to run for 5-8 minute races and want to ensure they have a bulletproof pack, Team Orion (for the loot, ). But, my hands down favorite is MaxAmps. Syndrome, you dont want no prah-blums .
