does anyone have any other ways of charging the IP 1450 life battery while its still in the car. i have figured out how i can wire it but i cant find a way in which i can charge it. i would have to take the top deck off the car every time if i wanted to charge it.

i use the ip battery i and i do pass the power cable to the back of
the tank and do the connection with the receiver power cable on the
top of the receiver box. i do not use a switch. This way its easy to charge it
without removing a thing.

However the balancer cable is too small to reach the top of the receiver box or
somewhere you can connect it with the balancer adapter.
I do not balance the battery on every charge, only on races and this can be
done by removing the tank (which is pretty easy). If you want to balance it on
every charging (which i personally find unessecary) you must provide a longer balancer cable.

if using a switch just put the power cable to the antenna hole of the receiver box and do
the connection inside.

Paolo Moprganti takes the win in a 966! Walter Diaz takes the win in Sedan with a 733 (the only 733 in the main) in the KO Grand Prix!

Yes, you definitely need the motor mount for a Sirio engine, the mounting point of the Sirio is narrower than the Nova Rossi base and Picco base engines.

Walter drove the 733 a perfect race! this is his 1st time racing the 733.

Paolo was fast with his 966, and was able to finally break the spell of what we call the "California curse"

I asked the same question. It seems they are not released yet. I machined them myself.
