Man that 1/3 AAA cell is small ! Did I read the price correctly for the 4 cell pack ? Is it really $7??? I would think and hope the Kan's will be a little more powerfull.

Is ther stock Micro T pack in a shotgun configuration? Or was CheapBatt's pix just incorrect? I thought it "looked" more like a side by side type of pack?

I wonder if an extra cell or two could be squeezed or made to fit? Well, I would really like to be able to drop a small 2 cell LiPo pack in there . First I need to get one ! Sadly our LHS's didn't get there shipmints in yet

lipos in this are useless!!

I recieved my lipos on friday and i charged them up over the weekend, put them in the car today with micro deans and the car is slower than with the stock pack!!!

i used the vxr racing 120mah 2 cell packs. they fit in there perfect and you are even able to put the connector in the battery compartment with them, however they hurt preformance soo much its not worth it.

How could it hurt the performance? The stock pack is 4.8 volts while a 2 cell lipo is 7.4v. Maybe the speed control just can't handle it?

one thing i didnt take into consideration when i bought them. 7.4 is how many volts the packs are rated at, but amps is what really matters. and at
10c continous 12c max, 120mah dosent make for too much power. one thing i over looked.

This past saturday I saw a micro-t on 2 lipo cells.It was retarted quick.I would say definatly more than doubles the speed just on the lipos.I will be getting this done soon by the guy that converted his.That battery pack on the stock motor is all it needs in speed dept.Now breaking things is a different story.The upper arm in the left rear did snap into 4 pieces when it kart wheeled out of control for like 5 seconds.It kept flippin and flippin and flippin.It was cool

maybe im supposed to run the medium size pinion or the smaller one.. cause this thing lags a lil,,, just a lil,, it doesnt wheelie on demand like the kans did,, and im really not too sure if the there is a real difference.. but something i havent done is run it for distance.. while on the track i did take it on the staright and noticed it had some goood speed to it.. (i havent tried this with the kans).. and when i first charged it i noticed it jumped certain jumps (but once again im not sure if the kans can do the same since i did try the same things).. it is fast,, dont get me wrong.. but everyone is saying the same thing,, oh it just wheelies for days.. im thinking any pack will make it wheelie IF ONE IS USING THE SMALLEST PINION ,,, i need to do an A/B comparison
