Specs will be 4600 40c, max charge rate 5c. With the smaller cases it was hard to get more capacity BUT 4600 is still plenty for 8 minutes. We were delayed a bit on the saddle pack but I will post a pic on Monday for sure.

Saddle pack lipos,,,,,,GrEaT!!!!! Not everyone is running a link car. Some prefer the feel and handling characteristics of the "ole' " t plate cars. Though I no longer own a T plate car, in my area a number of racers who do run them have asked me about saddle configuration and now I can direct them here. Go full speed ahead, Gavin. There is a market for them.

You don't know me but I did race a couple of times at 360 before its demise. But, going back further,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Etown baby!!!!! How's that for nostalgia

Hey guys, sorry for my lack of appearance on the board. Been busy but also progressing on our straight pack lipo...people will like it!

For the saddle pack, the plan is to still have it in October. The fit of a lipo into a tiny case has been more challenging than we expected. But I am commited to getting this option out there for the t-bar cars...stay tuned...

I'll post an update on our straight pack on the other thread shortly.

Gavin...any updates? I have a t-bar chassis just waiting to be run this winter...

I'm really surprised Gavin is the only manufacturer publicly advertising to the development of the 1s saddle pack. It's too bad that when the brick packs were designed they were not able to mold a channel in the center of the case to clear a t-bar. I bet may t-bar owners would give on the taller brick case to compensate for a channel to clear the t-bar vesus the alternative...purchase a spring chassis.

Okay...here is a full update.

Firstly, here is a picture of our design:



As I previously mentioned, we were going to release in October. However, I am now leaning towards eliminating the bullet connectors for the saddle pack and have a straight jumper. The reason for this is that I think it is more beneficial to not have a bullet connector for both the jumper and the positive and negative leads. I think two bullet points would be okay but with 4 we risk increasing the resistance slightly. I have never been a big fan of the whole resistance talk with direct vs. bullet but I want the customer to have no doubts when it comes to performance of our packs...

I would still like to produce this pack but not really sure now if everyone has swithched to a link car. So I would be happy to hear your thoughts on this.

Do we have a market?
