Please send me a PM or send us an email with your information and we'll get those out to you. Thanks.

Not totally sure but, the locators may only come with the saddle pack.

My straight pack came with locators, but to be blunt, they seemed useless.
Maybe I overlooked how they were intended to be used.
They were too wide to fit left-right in the cell cut-out of my 12r5.1 and no where long enough to use in the fore-aft position. I'm still just using lexan cut to size and servo taped to the packs. Its worked good for quite a while for me.

I think they were accidentally left out of some packs...if you need them, please PM me or email us. Nevertheless, we messed up during the packaging process.

I just figured it would be an added plus to get them. Some might use them, others might not. But they do serve a purpose. I'll try and post some pics later this week.

Exclamation

Update:

The 50C Saddle Packs are now BRCA approved!

AMC in the UK will carry our lipo packs and has stock.

Stormer Hobbies is the first shop to carry our packs in North America and they have stock as well.

Look for more items to be released by us in the near future.

Does anyone have a picture of the bottom of their car with the saddle pack and also one of the brick pack? I would like to see the locators in use. maybe also a picture of the locators seperately.
