Why wait for ROAR? (I know --the insurance thing)I think it was the straight 1s that was sent-- release them when they are done
most packs now in use aren't approved yet even if it has a sticker.
club racers will snap up as many as can be had--I know I will --I love t-bar cars.

There are only two single cells that are approved by ROAR. SMC And Fantom. Many guys that run T-Bars, are interested on speedzone Saddleback 1s lipos for the 12th scales T-Bars.

Thanks for clearing up the approved 1S lipos. But I still want to see the saddleback for the 12th scale, T-Bars.

Hi Everyone;

Firstly, thanks for all the feedback and inquiries.

Now, I hate when other companies give a release date and don't hit that release date. And yes, I have now become one of them. So I do apologize in advance.

So here are the latest updates:

Straight Pack 1S Lipo:
  • It was submitted to ROAR and failed inspection by 1/2mm. That was my fault. We are in the process of re-tooling and will re-submit to ROAR shortly.

Saddle Pack 1S Lipo:
  • The tooling process is taking longer than expected. And we will be delayed...that is the bad news.
The Good News...
  • The revised release date is set for mid-December
  • ROAR will receive packs for approval first week of December as I would like to release the packs as ROAR approved.
  • The added time for release has allowed for some further development and we should be able to increase the capacity and C rating of the saddle packs.

I have been contacted by three car manufacturers that are anxious to see this release as they will continue to support t-bar car development.

So bottom line is that we do have a delay. I am not nearly as big as my competitors but I do have the passion and we will indeed release both packs! No turning back.

Again I do apoligize for the delay and thank you for your continued support.

Gavin

Kind of figured on the delay. Just sitting and waiting on it. Figured it would be X-mas to New Years. No big thing. And a improvement on capacity, more power to the T-Bar guys!!
