Thanks for the info... I suspected they were bigger than the old NiCad packs (makes you wonder why they bother to make a LiPo pack ‘kind of the same’ as old stick packs)

I know. I bought them to fit the PB and my old original Ultima, which is also through-chassis and they don't fit either car, so I've never used them. I think they are made mainly to fit the Tamiya M-chassis cars.

I checked last night and the ones I have are Gens Ace.

Thanks Matt.
There are quite a few LiPo packs in that form available, are you able to measure the hole in the chassis where the pack goes through for me please?
my chassis halves have been hacked up (whoops) but I have new chassis and a heap of new parts on their way at the moment.

Thanks
Brent

Looking at this:

Seems to be a bit smaller width and height 45x24mm compared with most at 47/48x 25/26

They only ship within Europe, so hopefully you can find them somewhere else. Hard to get lipos from other countries these days.

I import stuff from Germany via container regularly, so all good.
Any chance you could take those measurements of battery hole in chassis? (Sorry to be a pain)

The hole size is 24mm high x 47mm long and it is a full radius at each end (12mm radius).
