running a losi its hard to find a cheap one that fits. But i found this which fits nicely in the losi's.
but if you're not running HV servos, i would recommend a life pack. that way you wont have to use a regulator.

If you're running high-voltage servos, there's no need for a regulator, and I would then recommend this pack:

If you're not running high-voltage servos, I would recommend a LiFe pack because you won't need a regulator. I have used this one; however, it will require slight modification to the lid of your battery tray.

I run Savox High Voltage servos in my Losi 8ight 2.0, and I run the Lipo recommended above. I didnt want to get the high voltage servos at first but after running them Im glad I spent the extra money and put them in. No need for a regulator or anything.

You need to run a low voltage cut-off to prevent your lipo pack from over discharging and being ruined.

Here is what I run. It is a on-off switch with a low voltage cut off and it has a battery meter built into it.

Default Where are all the lipo RX packs??

Can anyone clue me in as to why most lipo receiver packs have been sold out for nearly 2 months now. I run Losi's and there are only a few lipo packs that will fit in the radio tray - the Protek 8ight battery, the Losi rx pack and the Dynamite 2000, just to name a few. I've been looking to buy any of these packs and haven't been able to find any of them for sale anywhere.

Can anyone tell me where I can get any of the above batteries or clue me in on any alternative lipo rx packs that will fit in the Losi radio tray.

Thanks - Rick
