I don't know.

I'm looking for a LiPo for my vintage F103 that runs the brushed silvercan with an HPI SC15WP. Is there a LiPo that is about the same girth as a standard 7.2v NiMH but shorter?

I love orion shorty's, they are pricey though. SMC also has great lipos, but there never in stock!

There are some Lipos that fit perfect into the old Tamiya Cars.
In Germany they are sold by Jamara and Robitronic.
they are 134mm long and you can use the standard battery holders.

Hands down the SMC shorty pack. This past weekend I switched out from PROTEK 100C 7000 to an SMC 4600 70C and added the weight difference to the car and it was 2 tenths quicker consistently. I think this may be due to the weight being lower CG. I oddly had more punch than the PROTEK and no fade for all the triple A-mains. Finished 2nd though but the Peak and Reedy shortys had much less punchy feel. All were new with less than 5 cycles before the weekend. This was in a 17.5 blinky setup.
