No bumps on the bottom as that would reduce the size of the cells inside thus lowering the capacity or C rate. I didn't see or hear of anyone have any issues with packs coming out of there cars.

Running change as the only thing different is the wires coming out on top and the added graphite colored look. So the part numbers and the packs with new cases come packaged in a headercard and bag.

I think manufacturers are working on Lipo ready cars. Some manufacturers cars already work with Lipos and even if the pack doesn't fit under the topdeck the car still runs fine.

I ran one of the new updated 4000 mAh carbon packs with the wires coming out the top in Mod Foam at the IIC last week and it ran great!

One battery all week and it ran hard and fast each and every run with PLENTY of run time left over after each run!

You guys should check out these packs if you haven't already because they're great!

Thanks again Danny!!

Something like this that I just pulled off the internet...

Sunbeam Standard Heating Pad 1 ea (2) our price: $11.99

Dry heat provides relief for muscle and joint pain

Your SunbeamŪ heating pad is specially designed to fit a variety of areas.

Consistent even heat
Ultra-fast heat up
Extra soft cover
3 heat settings
Machine washable cover
9' extra long cord
12" x 15" Standard size pad
5 year limited warranty. See instruction manual inside for warranty details

When folded over it fits perfectly in my Lipo Safe bag.

AND I ONLY USE THE LOWEST HEAT SETTING TO GET THE PACK TO 110-125 F.

Bill

So no heating while charging? same result either way?

A lot of us have been using the Muchmore warming trays here, and they seem work very well also.

Can the foam, or what looks like foam, be removed so the lipo sits flat into the tray?

Jim Deiter used a muchmore heating tray and it melted the pit towel under it but it worked fine just make sure you put it on something that won't catch fire lol...There is no diff chargeing with the heating pad or chargeing then putting it in the heating pad i just do not like putting the heating pad in the lipo sack so i would charge then set my car up then put it in the pad till my run the IIC only allowed 110dg so it did not take long for the pak to get up to temp plus the pad allows you to wrap the pak up where the tray you have to flip the pak over and the pad is a lot cheaper....Later Drew
