Built in bannana plugs with no wires extruding from the case yes thats what we want. And if you put them on the top placing the plugs closer to the center of the pack if possible would be very helpfull.

YESYESYESYES!

My S120 thanks you.

As mentioned above
Bullet connectors would be nice;
16ga. wire if you have to run deans for the Quality Assurance;
Bullet placement? We are a fairly resourceful group, so I am sure wherever you place it we will make it work.

Everyones set up is different - where I would want it... Front, Top Centered - would have the link car 12th scalers asking for my scalp - using the "Orion" placement wouldnt be a bad 2nd choice, and workable for both set ups.

I am currently running the SMC 3.7v with the 17.5 & GTB SS Esc

Best of Luck & can't wait to see it.

Saddle pack design for t-bar cars! There are a bunch of them out there right now so there should be enough of a market to support them. Bullet connectors either facing forward or on top toward the center so there are no body clearance issues. Built in booster would be very cool as long as it does not add too much $$$.

I agree - if there was a saddle pack 3.7v lipo option I would be on it like white on rice on a paper plate in the middle of a snowstorm... and switch my current lipos out in a heart beat...if not quicker.

Make a Saddle Pack version and I will buy 3.

Count me in on needing a Lipo saddle, many tbar cars still running and if one could be made then I think you would have many customers.

Count me in for a couple of saddle pack lipos as well. I just bought my Serpent S120 earlier this year and I would hate to have to go buy a link car. Love my Serpent, hate link cars.

Hi all, firstly thanks for your patience. I know it's difficult when a company says that the product is in development and can't divulge any more information...like us.

So here is an update. We will have both a straight and saddle version of the 1S lipo. My goal is to release end of July.

Hopefully, I can make the drawings available for your viewing next week.

Ill take two saddle 1s lipos.

I just bought a turbo 35 and spent 3 hours researching NiMh just so I could run my s120.

If you guys would make it possible for me to continue in my lazy Lipo ways I would pay you handsomely for it!!

When you say released in July does that mean we can buy them then or is that like a xray/serpent release where we have to wait 7 months

Either way let us know when we can pre order

Just be sure the plugs and or deans come out towards the middle near the tbar. The body sits right over the cells in an s120

LOL...when I said released by late July, I mean GA(general availability), no long waiting period. That would be for both straight and saddle versions. Stay tuned!

Are your packs going to be able to pass the ROAR specs and become legal? I know there are some very anxious people going to the IIC race in serious need of some Roar legal 1s lipo saddle packs.
