I'm running two of them in my brushless Clodbuster (one pack per ESC/Motor combo) and so far they've done great!

Gotta wait for nicer weather before I can get a good idea of runtime out of it, but at least 5 - 10 minutes for sure...

And that's a lot more weight than you'll ever see in a touring car

I have two of them. They seem to have as much power as my Orion lipos but my Elite batts are new. I have about 10 cycles on them.

I ran one for over a year up until I killed it by extreme overgearing on a hot mod motor. They now have a 35 c 5000 and I haven't even got it very warm yet!

I have 4 of these to use in a brushless Erevo. They've been good to me, but are a little large if you want to use them in a T4/B4 type tray situation.

They just barely fit in my Yokomo MR-4TC...

There's a little space in the chassis that holds the ballance plug nicely

Update:

Had a chance to use a pack for more than five minutes... Got about 20 minutes or so on my E-Jato with a stock Tamiya silver can motor...

But the last 5 were slowwwww.

The Mamba cut-off has not tripped yet... With no load, the battery was at 7.56 volts... Charger put in 3100mAh or so.
