Thanks to you too!

Your dream has come true although multiple power connectors are not included:-)

I am not sure what the small Corally connectors are. It uses the same connectors as the Platinum but not sure if those are what are considered the small ones.

Yes you can see (and hold) the pack and see it run on track.

I saw in one of the magazines that you have an aftermarket wheel on your radio. How is it dimensionally different and is it available to the public? Iím looking for something slightly smaller in diameter and a little deeper to keep my fingers from hitting other buttons.
Thanks, Greg

those are considered the "large" connectors. i think rod c. uses (small connectors) them in his car also. the male connectors allow you to install the wiring at a 90 deg angle.

here's a pic.

It is the same diameter but moves the wheel away from the radio case so that you do not have to worry about your fingers hitting any buttons. It is not what you would consider readily available, but you can PM Steve Chamberlain (SCIDA) to buy one. I think he has some in stock.

Mark Pavidis and some other pro drivers use this wheel as well.

Will these connectors work?

I always hear about people calling these "Corally" plugs, but I've never found a good source for them.

Rick,

Great job at the worlds.

Will the new packs have the equilize port on the bottom of the packs like the existing packs? It'd be nice to have the port on the top so I don't have to remove the pack from the car when charging with my scorpion charger.

The balancing port is on the top.

Sorry for asking a question that has been anwswered here, I just can seem to find the answer, and yes, I did use search....

What is the weight difference between a pack of 3600 and the LiPo?

The simply answer is no, based on your described needs above. These packs are long and thin NOT fat and short (like me... LOL!!!).

Also by removing the case, you are reducing the protection factor that the case brings to the table and I'm pretty sure this would void the warranty, but someone from Orion would to verify that.

Bottom line - if you do this, will waste a good lipo.... so I would not recommend it.
