Default Tamiya M-03 & Lipo

does someone know if the Orion 3400 Lipo



does fit the M-03-chassis, as the Orion 3200 does?

I'm looking for a Hardcased Lipo to fit into M-03 without the need of modifying the chassis. As Orion is best-known over here and admitted as a safe Lipo around here, I prefer these.

Thx in advance!

Here is the funny thing.... RC MARKET says the 3400 doesnt fit .... but joe pillars from orion on the team orion thread says the 3400 uses the same case as the 3200........

So why would it not fit ?

Have the NEW 3400 LIPOs been released yet?

I was looking for data on these the other day to compare to the 3200's, but I didn't find any anywhere.

As you know, our series has been using the ORION 3200's exclusively, and I hope to stay with ORION in the future, but SMC just released their 3200's and are trying to move into the oval LIPO market.

Is there any comparison data for

Voltage Output
Run Time
Size
Weight

between the 3200's and the 3400's available yet?

Thanks

Hi Joe,

We just received the new 3400's here in the US a few days ago and they have already started shipping to all major distributors.

The 3400's use the same case as the 3200. When we originally made the 3200 case, we made it a little bigger than we needed because eventually we knew that we would come out with another battery with slightly more runtime. The 3400 is rated at 25C, the 3200 was rated at 20C. This case design and capacity has been one of our best sellers because it fits in basically every car configuration from Touring Car to Off-Road.

Thanks,
JP
