    (Revo 3.3) - What is the maximum lipo lenght on right side (tank side)???

    I'm doing a nitro to electric conversion. I thought about asking this on the E-Revo forum, but most of them use the electric chassis and since I'm keeping the metal 3.3 chassis, I decided to do it here.
    I'm doing a nitro to electric conversion on my Revo 3.3 and was wondering about the maximun lenght for a lipo pack to go on the side where the tank was.

    Thanks a lot!!!

    The tray that Tekno sells that replaces the tank and receiver box is 150mm X 50mm.

    Do you have a side photo?. The thing is that I'm thinkng about buying some 3, but also some 5s and 6s lipos and I'm not sure if they will fit.

    here you go... i believe length wise fits up to 6s but, lipo thickness varies.

    Hey, thanks a lot for the pic. That 4s fits perfectly. But it also seems to take all the available space. Do you think that a 6s will fit???... I haven't read the other thread but what can you tell me about that ESC mount?.. Looks great on that side!

    Wow, that looks great. I really liked the way you lowered the battery, but I'm afraid I won't be able to do that since I will bash with this truck and the bottom of the tray will be exposed to impacts from hard landings.

    As for the 5s & 6s dimensions, this is what I found:

    Lipo #1:
    Capacity: 8000mAh
    Voltage: 5S1P / 5 Cell / 18.5v
    Discharge: 30C Constant / 40C Burst
    Weight: 1054g (including wire, plug & case)
    Dimensions: 170x69x44mm
    Balance Plug: JST-XH
    Discharge plug: 5.5mm Bullet-connector (without housing)

    Lipo #2:
    Capacity: 8000mAh
    Voltage: 6S1P / 6 Cell / 22.2v
    Discharge: 30C Constant / 40C Burst
    Weight: 1220g (including wire, plug & case)
    Dimensions: 165x69x52mm
    Balance Plug: JST-XH
    Discharge plug: 5.5mm Bullet-connector (without housing)

    It seems the 5s is bigger (longer) than the 6s. Is it me??... If I'm right, none of them will fit the Tekno kit. :-(

    you can go with 2x 3s and series the ESC plugs.

    Wow, 60C!!!... Thanks for the suggestion. The thing is that I wanted a single pack as it doesn't need the extra wires (which results in less possible failures), and with more mAh like the ones I told you. Those have 8000mAh. And should give much more runtime.

    looks to me as the mah gets higher, the size gets bigger. my intention was to run single lipo pack and to eliminate one plug on my MMM, but for now i'm running it series cause i only have 2x 4s and 2x 2s...i combine 4s with 2s, i get 30 mins run time.

    What is your runtime with that single 4s? What is the mAh on that one?...
