I know a lot of guys at the club have had intellect lipo batteries with no problems.

One thing I would check though is the cell dimensions. Not much space in the cat for batteries and if you get a tall one it will foul on the belt pulleys. I know Mr dodd has some batteries that are massive and would no way fit in the cat as they are too tall.

When I raced a cat the biggest I got in there was a LRP 5300 which was 23.48mm high and that was a tight fit. So assuming these batteries are under that size then it will fit. I see the intellect 5800mah battery is about 23.17mm so that will fit fine. The intellect 6200mah is 24.88mm which i reckon would not fit.

as Rob says, cells need to be 24mm or less.......not even a tiny bit bigger will fit!

Be carefull of the turnegy ones too as they can be really too long.
Sorry to complicate things.

The battery size is 137.8x46.8x25 so to big then will have to have a look for something else . I thought I messured it so they would fit thanks guys for your input .

Check out the brca website for cell dimensions.
