Default stick packs

in the never ending quest for speed I will soon be purchasing some packs of matching cells,

I am therefore looking to making my own stick packs for my TA04,

are there any tutorials on the best method to do this,

thanks

Are you supposed to run stick packs only or could you run side by side packs? Sidexsides are easier to build and maintain.

Default Packs

If you're going for stick packs then this link may help.

If you could however, fit sidebyside cells that would be a better option for racing.

If you're looking to be at the very pointy end of the field go for the sidebyside packs.

hope this helps

Rod,

Like the other guys said, side-by-sides are easier overall, but if you must run the sticks, I believe that Trinity still sells a stick-pack building kit. I would HIGHLY recommend that you use a quality connector instead of the standard Tamiya connector (Deans Plugs).

By the way, change that avatar... you're making me dizzy!

yes,sidexsides are better , but as mentioned ,he;s doing the TA04 which doesnt have slots(basically) unless he changes the main chassis.
the connectors would be important,yes.
i have seen melted tamiya plugs.

Excellent, thanks for the replies guys,

that Trinity pack looks like exactly what I need, and Tower Hobbies sells them as well,

I cannot use side by side without modifications to the chassis, (that I dont want to do)

I already have Deans plugs ready for the job,
