Thanks,
I think it is either one of these (depending on LiFe or LiPo):

You are mistaken. Orion only have NiMH RX packs. Cody King is also sponsored by A Main Hobbies, hence the ProTek stuff.

Hi there. Johnnyboy is correct, we use the Protek 2300 LiPo. This came about because Orion only has an 1100 LiFe battery, which isn't enough for a one hour main. It's nice to have A Main with a lot of high quality parts. The Protek pack is really reliable and tough with the kevlar sleeve protecting it... very high quality.

I am getting back into racing after 10 years and have narrowed my car choice to the MP9, 8ight, and the JQ Car.

I want to get the most bang for my buck while not getting frustrated with set ups.
Hi Brad. The set-up on the TKI2 Spec A is very racer friendly. It's actually a good set-up, although depending on your track conditions, you might want to adjust it some.

Hi Pitop,

Wonder if you can help me, I've just about to order my new engine for next season.

I'm currently running CRF US Ed, do you if the venturi fit the new CRF Alpha engines. I'm going to have one of the 5port, do you know what size venturi comes with the engines as it doesnt really say great deal on this.
What size's have you tried using, I'm thinking of getting the 5.5 & 6 but this depends what actually comes with the engine in the first place.

Hope you can comfirm this for me please

Orion is not limited to carrying NiMH rx bats. 1500mah and 2400 SLB LiPos in hard casing are also available. Since they are sponsored by ProTek it would make more sense to go with those.

I don't think those were ever readily available in North America.

Quite a few places carry them in Canada and the US. The big two are:
