10 minutes? Easy...we regularly run 20 mins in practise.
WHAT MOTOR DO YOU GUYS USE?
TELL ME IF IM WRONG IT DOESNT MATTER FOR THE LIPO CAPACITY EXAMPLE ORION 3200'S AGAINST 3800"S AND 4800'S FOR THE TAMIYA SPORTS TUNED MOTORS RIGHT, IT DOESNT MEAN THAT YOU USE THE 4800 IT WILL ACCELERATE FASTER THAN THE 3200,RIGHT?

LIPO IS A NEW TECH AND I THINK ITS CHEAP BUT VERY EFFECTIVE. THOUGH I HAVENT GOT ANY FEEDBACKS RUNNING IT ON A MINI ON A RACE...

We use Sport-tuneds.

And you're right, the lipo 'size' is an indication of run time only, not voltage.

SO GO FOR THE ORION 3200'S YOU SAY FOR SILVER CAN AND SPORT'S TUNED HUH?

If you are going to race the Mini at club or National level, most of them will not allow Lipo. Therefore Intellect 4200 based packs are highly recommended.

I race against TFG and the RC-MINI crew - it's hard to tell whether they are running the IB's or the lipo's - so i'd argue they are quite competitive! I'd insert a sarcastic comment here about TFG's (lack of) driving ability - but i know what his response will be, so i won't add that here this time

WE RUN CLUB RACES FOR THE MINI ALL TYPES OF BATTS ALLOWED "SO HERE IS WHERE MY CURIOUSITY KICKS IN IF ITS MORE COMPETETIVE AND EFFECTIVE TO USE LIPO AGAINST NIMH AND NICAD" AND FOR THE T.A.C. WE ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO RUN NICAD AND NIMH TAMIYA BATTS CONSIDERING WE ALL RUN SPORTS TUNED MOTORS

TO N.T. WHATS T.F.G.?

Bakaguyjean, I use champ made ti and stainless screws which are made by same people who makes Tamiya screws.
Do you have web link to Tech racing, Tobee craft, Square?
I just remembered that you were looking for links. This should keep you busy for a while. There is a TA05 M-chassis conversion kit in the TN racing pages.

Default Molded tire inserts

Has anyone tried the Ride or Spice molded inserts in the Tamiya 60D tires? Is there a difference on track between the Spice 5.0 and 5.5 inserts?
Not interested in other tires as rules require the Tamiya 60D tire.

I wouldnt think they'd work too well, they're moulded to suit the smaller ID tires, the 60D's are substantially bigger.

And what is the run time if both using silver can and tamiya 101bk with it.
