That's good to hear. I eagerly await the moment I can give Orion a giant pile of cash for their fine batteries. :-D Thanks for keeping us in the loop

Rick,

Any chance that it fit in the T2 without modification or if the final version will?

I was not here when tested for fit, but I have been told it will fit. But I will have to confirm that.

Man, thats great news if it will fit a T2! I will definetely pick one up for my car. I do have 2 of the original 4800's but wasnt about to hack up my rear bulkhead to fit it in. The 4800's work in everything else I own though.

I can't wait to see a pic of the pack. That will instantly let us know what it will and wont fit in.

I just want a saddle pack with the hard case so I can run a BJ4.
I can currently run my one 4800 pack in my FK05 and in my kyosho ZX-5, it fits in my B4 but the weight just isn't there for good enough handling.

Charge current does not affect the power of the lipo it will just take a LONG time to charge at 1 amp

Anyone looking to protect their 4800 from damamge might check this out. The two sheets are enough for four batteries and once shrunk it fits perfectly. It was especially nice since I am shoe gooing cast blocks of solder to my battery to keep the battery in place on my RDX. If I ever change anything I just have to cut off the shrink wrap and I have a brand new battery. Again I would take pics but the wife has the camera.

When will the new design be out, I am trying to decide what car I am keeping, my t2 or tc4. If the new design fits the t2 without having to modify (that is putting it lightly) the rear bulkhead, then I will keep my t2. I need to know before carpet season starts back up. And I know, just wait a couple of weeks, that is what was said almost three months ago.

I would bet an Orion 4800 it would fit the T2 wo modification. Besides . . .seriously . . .can't decide between the t2 and the tc4? I almost thought you were joking!

Seriously, you're actually having to decide between a T2 and TC4? I'll make it easy for you, send me the T2.

You would lose that bet The 4800 won't fit without modification, but he knows that. The question is if the NEW ORION would fit in the T2, they say it might but no official confirmation on that yet.

xray or tc4 ??? thats a no-brainer for me

So team Orion, with all the thousands and thousands of dollars they make, and all the employees and team drivers they have, can't find a T2 and actually try the battery in the car themselves to make their customers happy?

RCCA still claims that the Platinum LiPo fits in a T2.
