Easy way to cut 50g:

I'll be impressed if the 3,900mah capacity claim holds up.

I would be impressed if the price were 1/2 of what it is....

My tower back order has it there but no change, nothing shipped. I don't want to just order it again. My pre order gets it for 240 because of my 40 coupon.

On a ($) / (gram of weight savings) basis, it's good value.

They replied to another person on their facebook page:

Our Champaign, IL warehouse just received and posted them, and our Reno, NV warehouse will post them shortly. Thanks for your patience!


What is "posted them" mean? I guess Shipped them? Sounds like British to me.

Likely refers to posting the inventory transaction, i.e. making it show as 'available' on the site.

Trackpower has a 3200 90C that's pretty good and only $56 on Amazon.

There's a company named Imbue making brass tappered shock pistons. Supposedly the extra weight of the pistons is supposed to slow and smooth the dampening action. Anybody try these?

The packs I tested were just above and below the rated capacity.
None were below 3800mah.

Regarding price, all products unless they are on a special are listed at full retail. We support the hobby shop by not trying to undercut them.

Not sure the actual "Street" price but tower has it listed at $118. That's crazy. Just because you can have your car at 1499g doesn't mean you should.

Just checked the tower web site, logged in, and went to the my back orders section to find


Invoiced - Processing in Warehouse


That sounds good....

I've always been happy with Reedy Lipos; so I'm glad to see Reedy's now offering a light weight "low profile" 2S pack.

3900mah capacity relative to 160g weight is impressive. More mah/g compared to others.

Can anyone tell me the difference between the c and d arm mount? Advantages and disadvantages? What is reccommended for indoor high traction damp clay?

I would guess it changes the angle of the hinge pins to adjust toe?
