This is the only way to do it in my mind!!!!
first off thank you all for the good advice.
Chris, I will take you up on that offer. Just let me know when it is good for you. I get off work at 430, so anytime after that would be good for me. I Pmed you my # on Rcccs and i should be in and out of Jays this week.
Novak seems to be a pretty common recomendation across the board.
I kind of like the fact that you can tweak the Mamba to infinate combinations...but that can also get me into some trouble.
I like the sounds of the LRP being so smooth.
What i am trying to accomplish over this winter is smoothing out my heavy finger for nitro. I am a solid C main contender at a regional race here in the Northwest. my goal is to replace that on/off switch in my finger with a reostate. lol
the LRP sounds like its smoothness would help that, but i too have been told to stay away from it for its unreliable nature.
I have been told that Novak is great for plug and play driving and is very good for the newb (me!!)
I can't stop coming back to the Mamba, however, for its infinate adjustability. so here i pose another question:
can you tune the mamba to be smooth like the LRP? and is it going to be reliable and solid once it is set?
As for power i think i am going to go with Chris's sugestion and shop local with MaxAmps. heard great things about their Batts and the people behind them. Plus i love to support the local guy. the only thing (and this may be because of my lack of experiance) is that it is more of an open cell battery. No protection. Like an earlier post, i have seen Orion's lipo hard pack, and thought what a great idea!!
Im not sure if you can buy hard cases for lipo protection or not...but i am also a machinist and work with plastic as well...so i son't think fabin somthing up would be too hard....
anyway thanks for all the response and keep em comin guys!!!!!!!
