Speedzone releases the first ever 1S hard case saddle pack, giving all 1/12 scale T-bar car owners a true option when it comes to LiPo packs. Rather than shifting around electronics and rebalancing the car to fit a standard LiPo, a LiPo saddle pack offers up a perfect solution and a perfectly balanced 12th scale car. Naturally, this pack is not limited to 1/12 scale and can be used for all 1S applications which accept the pack’s dimensions.
Measuring 46mm x 46.5mm x 23mm, the dimensions of the saddle LiPo pack are similar to a standard NiMH saddle pack. Weighing in at 156 grams, not that far off from a standard 1 cell LiPo pack, it is already ROAR approved and pending BRCA approval. ROAR has adopted the dimensions in their rules book and it is expected that BRCA and EFRA will follow. The 5200mAh Pro series packs have a 50C rating and a maximum charge rate of 5C. All packs are assembled with flexible, high-flow wire and will ship with Speedzone battery rails/guides. The purpose of the battery rails is to help maintain the position of the battery pack in the car. Chassis fit is snug and body clearance is not an issue.
