I might be interested in this for my 12l3 - one of the biggest issues with using a std 3.7 or even a shorty 3.7 is that for the electronics to mount the other side you have to deal with the battery slots. But a shorty 3.7 might be interesting to look into too.

As far as the manufacture.. what about doing a "Batch" say of 25-50. My guess is the hardcase plastic - if it needs to be special manufactured(size) is the biggest issue.

Why not just get a 2s saddle and run them in parallel?

Because of the weight and room? No?

I've never run saddle packs, figured there must be some out there that are small enough to work.

Most of the 2s saddle packs I've seen are 2s for each half of the saddle, run in parallel to double the capacity, not voltage. In other words, 2 2s packs. 1/12 scale runs 1s.

I'm using 2S saddle packs that are 1S for each half of the saddle only. In 1/10 off road at least, and that's what almost all my mates run in saddles.. It might be different in on road idk

I'd be interested in 2.
T-bars are great for new drivers and kids getting into racing.

I've got two t-bar cars, one pro10 and one WGT, so I am definetly interesred. I was going to use standard 1s pack (or half a 2s saddle) on one side and use the electronics and lead to even out the weight. I'd much rather have saddle packs.

Yes, for the 1s Lipo, and new wiring options would be welcome. The original 1s saddle wiring was a little difficult for my car.

We will decide this week if we want to pursue bringing back our 1S saddle packs. 1/12th is a great class and would hate to see the t-bar cars become a paper weight.

I have run a 1s Speedzone saddle pack back about 2 years ago in my 12L4. The pack performed great and the car ran like a champ. Was right in the mix with all the link cars. I eventually broke down and bought a link car but keep the 12L4 with my 1s saddle pack as a backup.
