I was confused over the rationale too. Sometimes, if Fred explained his logic up front, then it would have actually made sense to everybody. There is a method to his madness.
I whined to Fred why there was no Lipo allowed for GT1.
Here's his response:
"For GT-1. Let brushless in and see what happens."
"For GT-2. Let both brushless and Lipo in and Really see what happens."
"For GT-3. Let Lipo in and see what happens."
I think this is a great experiment. Fred isn't picking sides on technology and we are the guinnea pigs.
