Default New "Sanction Spec" 5000 SS pack

After several months of designing and reworking, we have finally come out with a pack that should work perfectly for racing applications and satisfy the ROAR guidelines. It includes 6 ounces of extra lead built into the pack. The hard case surrounds the entire pack and is also built in. We have also included 4mm bullet connectors built into the pack so you can direct solder the other end to the speed control and plug right into the pack.

Based on the time I spent at Snowbirds with the racers, this should really satisfy the needs of the hard core racers. We have already sent the packs into ROAR and are awaiting approval.

Let me know what you think...

Every lipo pack should be balanced every 3-4 cycles. Some packs will end up never actually needing it but its still a good idea. It will extend the life of the pack and give you better performance.
