Why run these?

If you bash or run modified, or perhaps run on a slippery offroad track, these are perfect.

They charge in 15 min for a 2s1p pack and when the batteries run dead, instead of slowing down gradually, they'll drop within a half lap, all of a sudden the car will almost come to a stop.

I ran a 6 min main with an mf2/5700 mamba with a 2s1p pack ( 6.6v 2300 mah) with no problems on a medium sized track.


They do have new packs out that are similar in size/shape to the hard case lipo packs, without all of the babysitting that a lipo needs.

Would love to see a pic of the proper A123 packs in a TC, preferably the 416

Orion has more volts, no wonder it has more punch!! You're saying a Ferrari 355 has more punch than a Porsche Boxster - well, yes!! Please compare like with like before you dismiss this product.

Interesting related article (read the last line), as huge applications like 1:1 will trickle battery technology down to us:
