With the balancing tap and the standard + and - taps it should work just fine. I noticed this first since I have the TC-1030 and haven't used the balancer once yet.

You just have to buy the flightpower style balancing connectors for your balancer. The balancer itself will work fine.

As for the zippy cells, look up plane/heli reviews. I'd say they are better than most 4000mah cells you get from major brands.

I have a few of the smaller Zippy packs and they have performed flawlessly! The only downside to ordering these is that they come from overseas and shipping takes a while (~1wk).

week to process your order so 1 week for delivery is better then 1 week to process then another 4 days to get the stuff

Yeah, I know....I wasn't complaining. I actually thought it was fast considering the country of origin. I am just used to the same day shipping, 2 day delivery of some of my regular vendors.

Ahh....yes, thank you! Hopefully those bumps wont cause the battery to sit up too high in my chassis.

Unless they are huge bumps, they shouldnt cause it to sit more than a few mm higher than if the bottom were flat. Hobbyking says it is 25mm thick, meaning from the bottom of the bumps to the top of the batt should be 25mm... Thats how every other company claims their heights I believe. What car are you running this is?

I shaved the bumps off my yeahs so I could run a li-po plate under them with zero issues.
