Team Orion WTS (Weight Transfer System) For Hard Case LiPo Packs

Jan 26, 2012 1 Comment by

Orion has developed a new system to help dial in your setup using weights and the popular “shorty” LiPo packs. Check out all the details in the press release below:

Team Orion was the first company to encase LiPo cells inside a plastic hardcase to protect them from impacts and render them more user friendly. Now we have evolved that design once more and bring you the WTS “Weight Transfer System” in combination with a World Champion winning Carbon Pro 90C 4000mAh battery.

In many of today RC race cars, weight distribution is an important factor in the setup of the car and racers move the battery forwards or backwards to change the weight distribution. The problem is that the size and disposition of current batteries limits the effectiveness of this setting. To remove this limitation, we have developed a new battery case that uses shorter cells and is equipped with three compartments to fit weights. Thanks to this you can not only modify the position of the battery, but also its total weight and the disposition of that weight within the battery case.

For perfect installation in your car, the Carbon Pro 90C WTS battery features two connector positions. This also allows you to shorten your ESC cables for even better efficiency. Furthermore the battery has switched battery polarities between front and rear to avoid misconnections when the battery is turned on.

With the the battery you get a full set of brass and aluminum weights. However, you can also buy spare weights and battery covers.

Features:

  • Newly designed carbon look case
  • Compact size and lightweight
  • Latest 90C LiPo technology
  • 4000mAh capacity, ideal for off-road use
  • Off-center cells allow better weight positioning
  • 3 weight slots for maximum adjustability
  • Weights made out of aluminum (22g) or brass (69g)
  • Adjustable weight from 204g (w/o weights) to 411g (w/ 3 brass weights).
  • Connectors located at the front and rear of the battery for easy connection
  • Switched battery polarities between front and rear to avoid misconnections
