Things are headed towards a return of the SWT Series, but for
2017 the focus will be on the Encino Velodrome (and dirt oval racing)

2400 mah?

It could replace the typical 1800 nicd Sport Pack, and last much longer. It'd make a good spec class too. For a 5 minute race, i only use about 1800 mah with a 13.5, maybe a 2400 could be a more plactical battery. Lighter weight = Less wear/breakage.

I'm guessing it'll be less than $30, right? It sounds promising.

I bought one of them about two weeks ago. Wow is all I can honestly say, threw it in my T4 with a 10.5 novak and had a ball. A rough run time from what a friend and myself decided was about 30mins. Give or take 5 mins it was a guess we had.

I threw it in and started running around 6:15pm. Once the battery was almost dead I came right in and it was 7:00pm. I know for the first 15mins I was just messing around. After that I was giving it all the throttle I had. We were actually racing each other on an outdoor track.

I actually came in after he did and he was running a trackpower 4900. Honestly for the price it is a great battery. For play, spec, racing whatever I suggest it. I will need to do a better test to see what the exact run time is.

Peace Aaron(W-W)

Sounds awesome I bought mine because of the stick pack size. Now I use it for my lunch box and my slash.

My friend uses them in his VTA car without any hassle. I think it's a great pack for people wanting to get into lipo for a reasonable price. It would be a great Spec battery.

Yep it's round so fits in mini. It was used as a spec battery at the recent TCS Nationals. Works great!

Hanzo yes it fits most if not all 1/10 touring cars, it is shaped like a stick pack to fit chassis which need that type of battery but it also has humps on the bottom which give it a side by side layout if you want to use it on a top end car.

How big is the case on the 2400 vs the Orion 3200 & 3400 packs?
