Danny - are you talking about a 7.4 two cell?

No it's 3.7v two cell pack as 7.4v is to fast for 12th scale.

Would a 3 cell pack be better for 1/10 pan ?

This packs is primarily designed for 12th scale cars to have a solution for these cars to go Lipo. This pack can also be used in Oval where slower speeds are needed than 7.4v Lipo and 10th scale pancars can also use this packs. I expect the capacity to be in the 3800-4000 so that should be enough capacity for the 13.5-17.5 classes.

I wonder if the battery could fit up one side with electronics on the other side? Must need to find a way to keep it in the car I guess.
The old Tamiya C-Series cars used to run a T-bar that had a stick pack go over the top of it. The T-bar sat flush with the rest of the chassis and was mounted by 2 screws into the battery box. A similar configuration using ball-studs was used with the F103 cars. So you can design a t-bar set-up that will work without the need for a saddle pack layout.

...but the design would have to work (well). Unlikely I think

I'm still pretty stoked about this and look forward to more track testing results. I'm available next weekend for testing...

Default 3.7

what about running a 11.1v paralell to make a 5.5v, which would be close to the 5 or + 5v that a 4600 4cell energy pack produces?

Two 11.1V cells in parallel is still 11.1v, with twice the current capacity.

An 11.1v Lipo uses 3 Lipo cells in series of 3.7v

Lipo cells have 3.7v per cell.

Danny this all sounds great. I belive this could be the perfect solution for 1/12 and the new "worlds GT" 1/10 class.
