Some info regarding the production schedule...(if you have any)

Thanks a lot

Jean-Christophe

My car is as shot by Jimmy at our last national - because that was my car! (the NiMh one not LiPo).

Unfortunately, i don't have any confirmed timing, so i'm afraid i can't be of any help to you there.

is it just me or are the spares a tad pricey on there? the shock towers especially, i thought they would be cheaper as they seem use far less carbon than on other cars.

Hope they're strong.........

They're 4mm thick and should be able to cope with some abuse.

Has anyone seen the Lipo version? Its such a different layout it'll be interesting to see how it goes. The nimh looks very good on track!

Also, anyone know if saddle pack lipo&s will fit in the lipo version?

I hope so - I've got saddle pack Trakpower 4800's to squeeze in when I get my SX. They're not that much longer than the stick surely? I managed to fit them in a Durga with no problem.

I would be glad if you could post some pics on how you fit and secure this pack in you Durga, including connections.
On my side I have a bit of difficulties with the connectors that do not allow putting the body properly in place (problem with the height of the pack).

Thanks

Sent you a PM - Can you not solder the 4mm plug at 90 degrees to the wire, so the wire lays flat on the pack? Or use 2 battery bars with a 4mm plug at one end to go into the pack, and the ESC wire soldered at the other end - just to take the wire away from going directly into the pack at an angle that is preventing you from mounting the shell.

Thanks for your feedback and PM. Started the soldering work with wires at 90 degree with corally connectors. Finished 2 small extensions that allow me to use the carbon plate and aluminium screws coming from a TA05.
It should work!
