Keep in mind this was only for low grip situations, such as the begining of a night racing or new carpet. I had even noticed in one of the pics from the last event Viktor had removed the steering post brace to get a little more flex out of the car.
We have tested stiffer upper deck on carpet and that did not improve the car, none of us did like it. But I need to test it on a really high grip track to see what happens there.

Personally, I would go for a Orion 3600 or Schumacher Core 5000 pack over the 4800... the 4800 is a little bit of old tech now (if it can be called that ), and the 36 and Core5000 have much more punch.

Actually, I think the new SMC hardcased packs are the most impressive I've seen(or run for that matter, first LiPo I've tried that shows ALL of the punch of the best NiMh's I'e ever had, though I'll admit I have not tried the Orion 3600, but I have the others & the SMC feels better & my lap times seem to bear it out), & I believe their 5000mah one is similar, weighs in at like 286g. It's definitely one to consider.....

The Orion's are noticeably softer than other LiPo. The tradeoff, I suppose, is that they'll last for like 1000 cycles, and are extremely safe. I think they'd be a good choice in racing where voltage isn't so import, but in on-road, they'll likely put you at a disadvantage.

It seems like SMC's cells are doing very well on the voltage front, and cycle life has been decent as well. If you heat them up a little bit, the voltage is quite a bit better, with no detriment to the pack. I've had my share of disagreements with the SMC folks, but there's no question those are the cells I'll go with next, especially if it's a big race allowing LiPo. The only other one I'm really curious about is Tekin, because I suspect they're going with a cell manufacturer I'm very fond of.
