Yes this is a great battery set up the only problem is, I am dealer for VXR and haven't been able to get any product for the last 6 weeks. They have told me they are going through a re-orginazation. Then they sent me an e-mail stating they are closing there U.S. office and all product will be shipped from over sees. Not what i want to deal with.

The packs seem to work well but be careful, ROAR has ruled lipo illegal for all in car applications.

11/12/06 LiPo battery decision clarified.

For 2007 Lithium Polymer batteries are not permitted to compete with NiCad or NiMh batteries in electric class racing because the voltages are not equivalent nor do the pack dimensions match those currently observed by ROAR and IFMAR. This rule does not currently affect receiver packs at this time, however ROAR is concerned with the overall safety of these cells when located near or around flammable/combustible materials. ROAR will investigate this further.
