It will be nice to have as level a playing field as possible. The battery wars will start soon enough.

I don't see why buying a hard case saddle pack won't work. All you'll have to buy from there is a booster or a reciver pack.....like a small helio pack..... Just my thought's... Any suggestions?

A lot of the saddle packs are pretty tall. Not sure they will fit under the shock all that well but you can put it side ways on the car like the t-plate guys.

Yes, I'm sure SMC will have something to up the ante too.

Aero-Model/Hacker Brushless is taking pre-orders for the 1S 5000mAh 40C pack. I am being told by Thunder Power we should expect them in a couple weeks. http://www.aero-model.com/batteryDetails.aspx?id=race

anybody know where to get the trakpower 2 cell saddle in the states?

http://www.trakpower.com/Flash/tp3200saddlenew.swf

it's only 207g and I think I can fit it in my xforce and just run parallel with it for 3.7volts 6400mah

I checked nexusracing.com and tower and neither have it in stock.

and you say it's all good that SMC is the only game in town right now but remember not everybody has one nor the track time to figure out the handling differences to be competive for the lipo classes that are going to be run. so now you have a class that is forced to change there car with only 1 brand option at THIS time. tell me that isn't sort of stupid. some companies can't pop a car out over night and expect to be competive with it. and some people don't have any love loss for Danny and won't run his stuff out of principle. personally I think his stuff is good stuff. but still, remember when Novak was the only real game in brushless motors and everybody screamed for the other companies to bring out brushless motors. well it's taken 4 or 5 years to get to here.

I saw one in the For Sale board yesterday. The IB 4200 30C saddle pack can be had on eBay for ~$70 + shipping - only downside is its coming from HK...

The thunder power packs should be coming to shelves soon. They were building them last week.

Losi are not going to be out until Aug it looks like. (that is according to Horizon's web site)

Currently you have 3 ROAR approved options. SMC 4000 mah 25c, Thunderpower 5000 mah 40c and the Fantom 5000mah 40c. We should be seeing a new SMC battery fairly soon, so that may be the reason the 25c 4000 is on back order. Reedy will have a 5000 35c soon, sometime in July and Protek will have a 5000 35c as well this summer. So that would be 4 1s batteries in under a years time. We've only had the 1s SMC for under a year.

Just got my Thunderpower packs today so they are available. Call Thunderpower for availability. As far as using one of the 2s saddle packs for 1s racing, they won't be legal for ROAR racing or races using ROAR rules so they won't be legal at the IIC. Dimensions are all wrong. They definitely won't fit under a center shock and they might be too tall to fit under a 12th scale body.

Nash .... as far as a saddle pack, don't know if it'll ever happen as the above mentioned battery labels won't be building one. So if you're looking for a saddle before the IIC ..... I doubt it'll happen
