Awesome to see hard cased saddle packs. Fantastic for 4wd off road racers!


Excellent.

No, 2c just degrades the cells faster...

And they say you should do that when your using the balancer while charging....

This is just the beginning guys. Now that lipo is legal the first thuing that will start is underweight outlaw racing. Sedans will change in layout to balance properly with the lighter lipo and the lipo packs will change in shape to fit these new cars. Expect to see the return of saddle packs

As always this outlaw racing will become the norm in a year or two.

well actually the Losi Type R and the TM E4 are ahead of the game

My TM E4 is perfectly balance with no weights added and it weighs just under 47ounces race ready

I just hope the actual cells are not the same ones that are being used in the Checkpoints. The cells in the CP are only 16C.
