Default Trakpower or Orion

Hi all, Iím needing some new cells and Iím wanting to go lipo but canít decide between the Trakpower 3600 or the Orion 3800 what do people think is best also does any one know how thick the Orionís are as Iím going towards the Trakpower because I know that they will fit in my car (Serpent S400) with slight dremelling.
Thanks, Joe.

To me orion is the way yo go 3800 gives you more run time than 3600, I never heard of trakpower, I've used orion for years they have great products...

Both are quality packs...Trakpower has been around a long time. 3800 vs. 3600 you won't really notice a difference in run time it's only 200mah

^^^ Ditto, both are high quality pacs. The Orion 3800 is listed as 136mm L x 47mm W x 22mm (0.87") height or thickness. 3600 Trakpower shows 20.8mm for thickness,so the Orion is slightly thicker.

Either would be a good choise.

The orion packs are simply the best imo.

Thanks for the replies, the Orion might be a bit tall so I think I might go for the Trakpower but havenít decided yet.
