A reduction in weight was discussed, however this was vetoed and the current weight limit remains. I think at the end of the day, you will have some guy's who will want to run NiMH's and others Lipo's.
Not everyone is attempting to drive at the head of the field. Some racers run Mini just for the fun of it.
I know that I try to be competitive and to do that you run what is needed to achieve that aim.
Unfortunately some of us may have the equipment but not necessarily the driving skills to achieve the aim.
However making an Mini 'A' final when I can is enough to keep me happy.
To get a Mini to work with Lipo's you have to add ballast which needs to be added to the correct areas, so as to stop traction rolling. I know that I have added 230gms to mine when I've run Lipo so that it still handles. The secret is to where do you add the ballast???
I have heard there will be an informative article on this subject soon.
