The single cell was designed for 12th scale. I don't believe Bullet connectors would fit as they would be sticking up to high due to the bodies being slammed real low. That being said we don't use Bullet connectors as I have explained why before but I doubt that our competitors will go that route if they want the packs to fit in a 12th scale.

No else seems to have issues with the wires hitting there speed control ?

If you take the height of the male Bullet connector and wire it will surely be hitting the body. We wanted to use top exit wires with this pack but we were told that the body is to low so I don't see how the Bullet connectors woldn't be to high.

Other ppl have issues to but no one else seems to want to post them because of the bull crap banter. I for one dont care much for it but , once again.. the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

So back to discussing the pack=

I am coming back to RC after about 2 years off. We wont count the month of offroad i did last year

So- I ordered two of these 5000 SMC packs and the LRP Pulsar 3 Charger. What needs to be done as far as setting up the charger and caring for the packs? Im sorry to come and newb out.. but-- uhm, never had a lipo before. I hear these things can be violent when made mad. Id like to keep them happy.

I am so happy to have gone back a few pages to see that they come in Carbon Cases now- rather than as red bricks. Made the purchase that much easier.

Keith

Hi Stephen. Have you been racing allot ?

Keith: Let me know if you have any questions ? You will see Lipos are pretty cool and relatively easy to work with.

Cool, thanks Danny. I sent you an email last night- but- uhm, i was going from memory. I recently had a HD go on a one year old MacBook... lost everything.. pics of my little girls being born, vids of my 2 year olds first steps... and yes, all emails and websites. Took me a DAY to finally get my password and log in right here..
