Drew Manzella, i do not know about you, but here where I live is 2007 and Lipo (and other Lithium based cells) have became the standard for a lot of things, Mobile phones, laptop computers, electric power tools, model rc planes, model rc helis...and OK because of stupid protection rules not yet in rc cars, or better, they are allready the standard in rc cars but not in official IFMAR races of rc cars.
In brushless is the same. Look in Europe where brushless motor are allowed in oficial competitions. Do you know what people is driving? Thats right Brushless.
In generic terms you have the picture: Where people can choose, they are using lipo and brushless. Where you do not see people using them look for the rules and you will know that the rules are not allowing them.
It is simple...quite simple.
And please do not make promises of things you do not know.
