Oops, yeah you are right. It was .04v variance. But that is still enough to warrant balance charging in my opinion.

Your 5000 soft pack just fits in.

Thanks
The 4000 pack just fits in my PHi. I bought the lipo tray from Verndog and I'm going to have to do some interesting fitment to make the tray and pack work together on this car. It fits under the bulkhead but puts some stress on the top deck and hits the lower nut on the rear of the top plate.

I just saw a guy at S.I.R. fit an Orion 3600 with our 3.0oz base plate into a PHi. He flipped the nobs up, drilled the 4mm bullet thru the battery and mounted to the other side. I think he just shifted the pack a bit away from the bulkhead low spot, bonded it in place, and he got it to balance very close. Point being the SMC should be able to do the same since the 4000 isn't any thicker then the Orion without the nobs (20.5mm or .807").

Hey Verndog. I love the tray and the side weight. Great quality stuff. I haven't had much time to try and fit everything and I'm pretty picky about how things fit in my car. I want to be able to swap Nimh batteries in whenever I feel like it, so I haven't sanded the chassis for the plate to fit because I don't want my NiMh batts to fall too low in the chassis. I'll be working it tonight though. I'm trying some different wiring layouts to get the pack to sit where it's supposed to on the car without having the wires hang out everywhere or rub on the belt. I'll let you know how it goes. I really don't want to put this stuff in my kid's TC5.

Danny, I tried the pack Thursday night but traction was terrible. (dust storm) I wasn't able to pull the throttle like I wanted to but the pack did have plenty of rip down the straightaway. Until I get this fitment thing worked out, I guess I'll have to suffer with these bada$$ EnerG cells. Either way, great products.

Hi,

Will be in the US next week, in Miami and New York; can anyone kindly post the names/numbers of retail shops that have these in stock? I'm planning to buy some to bring home to the Philippines also what balancer do you guys recommend for these packs?

Thanks!

Nice looking packs. Too bad they don't fit in off road buggies due to the wires coming out the side.

I believe the 4000 will fit where the sub-c pack fits. The 5000 will fit if you move it to the right as it's to tall to fit under the top deck. I actually think that moving the pack out some will help balance the car.

This weekend I raced with our 4000 pack in a XXX-CR. It's very easy to take a Dremel with a sanding drum and grind down a small slot for the wires to come out. As I have said multiple times on this thread there was no way for us to get the wires coming out on top.

I will be test fitting a very similar sized pack into a 007 with a base weight that locks the lipo to chassis. If it fits the 007 I believe it will fit the 008. I'll let you know a bit later this week.

This is the stainless base weight I'll be using.

Yes, but when you first came out with the uncased lipos you said there was no need for hardcase LiPos. So maybe one day you will find a way to get the wires out the top.

Well, many still feel there is no need for a hardcase, but ROAR rules require it.....and if you want to sell a product to the racing public, ROAR approval is a big neccessity, especially for a racing company like SMC....

Later EddieO
