And with that we can barely fit low profile plugs in the case with out hitting the body.
The Gens Ace pack dim's are Size:69.1 * 46.48 *24.9mm(L * W * H)
25mm height is going to be an issue with most modern 12th bodies.

Have you tried the GA packs in 12th car, or have you seen anyone who has ?

The Packs that Gavin made, do actually fit in a 12th scale car.

Gil jr developed the Associated RC12L, Associateds first T-bar chassis. The L in RC12L is for Losi. The RC12L came out in 1986, but Delta, Parma and Schumacher had been selling T-bar cars since 1982.

After reading this tread, we may re-visit reproduction of the saddle pack. I would love to hear some feedback.

Yes I own the packs I linked, my buddy loaned me his old t plate car (I'm not sure of the type but it has a crc front end and its not any big name brand) anyway the packs fit and the body was cut out 2-3mm past the lines mainly in the rear. The packs are very heavy, but the o.p was discussing getting new people into 12th scale(like me) so I don't think the extra weight is a issue. In fact it made the car easier for me to drive, as compared to his lightweight speed merchant.

I'd be interested in seeing some pics of your electronics layout in that car.

We lost 3 local guys that were running t-bar cars because they could not find new Speedzone saddle packs anymore. They never bought link cars either they switched to another class. There are still guys that like t- bar cars better.

These might fit; only 23mm tall so the same height as NiMh cells (although they won't sit down into the chassis, so they'll probably still be about 2mm taller overall):

Yes it is Rocket Science mixed with Dremel Skillz.

These pics were with SP set-up, have since gone to tekin, now all-up weight at 757g with 5 cell rec pack.

All Hail/Hack the link cars

please don't ask about the upper pod plate, i was durability testing stuff!
note: bob stelflue saw the severely raised shock front mount at 2010 paved nats, how long did it take ae to get that 'centered battery' to market? I'm hanging in to the bitter end......

No skillz and no Rocket science. This is a two cell Lipo so its a little heavier than a 1 cell lipo.Needs a little weight added but the easiest way to get someone in 1/12th. So its 7.2 and also it running a 540 so no need for a special speed control.

For a while some of us were running 1s that way. Just a little lead on the electronics side and it worked fine.
