I cant speak for AE but im sure a saddle pack lipo will fit. Alot of people seem to figure that lipo will not fit because a car does not accomodate a stick pack lipo. This is not always the case.

The saddle packs are starting to show up in hard case form. Tracpower has a hard case lipo in saddle pack form but it is extremely tall. Being that saddle pack cars are in such demand in 4wd offroad and will be shortly in just about all classes. You can be certain that you will see a ton of hard case lipo saddle packs.I believe SMC and maxamps both have one that fits all the cars or are soon to be releasing one

i just need to know how much and when will it be available . i would like to see this class start and survive . i would be in favor of a 4 cell with a 13.5 motor or a lipo with a 21.5 .not sure if the car can handle the power or speed of a 13.5 or 10.5 with a lipo battery. but then speed is nothing if you cant put the power to the ground (carpet or asphalt)and cant controll it i want one for the snowbirds

Hopefully AE will have a couple of these cars on display at the IIC and maybe some folks will be running them in the Pro10 GT clas at Cleveland

i know you guys are talking about how lipos do not work for these cars because of the wieght and power from them but my track runs lipos with 13.5 brushless motors and i was just wondering if the trak power saddle pack should fit? I mean the bmi car looks the same with the battery layout and they say it fits the trak power saddle packs.

The BMI DB10r will not fit the trak power 4800 pack, way way too tall. I know the maxamps non-hard case fits perfect, and the new SMC hard case saddle (not yet released) is *supposed* to fit. I haven't heard any info on if the trak power 3200 saddles are shorter or not, but if so they might fit.

Jason over at BMI is making weighted lipo trays to take saddle packs that will fit, and bring the lipo weight up to closer to the sub-c 4 pack weight. Cant wait to get my hands on one.
