The 5000mah packs are in the same size case as the 7000 packs are so there is a TON of room in them that should prevent them from swelling any at all. The VTA pack is my best selling pack and I can only remember 1 pack Ive ever replaced in the 3 years I have been offering it. So if you had one swell then possibly there was something wrong with the pack in the first place and why it didnt perform up to your expectations to begin with.

Thanks
EA
I sent you an e-mail with more details.

ROAR's vta rules mean nothing to the USVTA...the motor will not be changing.

Would you consider this,

For the HPI Mustangs (6, 7 and 8 above) which are not provided with a spoiler:
. . A lexan spoiler of 16mm total height from trunk deck, and overall chord of 20mm is allowable.
. . All other bodies must use the spoiler included with that specific body set. Built in spoilers may not be enhanced.

For the Cougar body?

Thanks

Since the Cougar body does not come with spoiler, I'd like to believe the same "Mustang rule" applies.

Just a quick question about the HPI tires&wheels.
I'm thinking about buying a HPI 1968 Chevrolet Camaro body set and some VTA wheels/tires just for fun cause here in europe they don't have VTA races.
What i would like to know is are the wheels aso included when i buy some HPI tires with the following part nr HPI4793 & HPI4797?
Cause i'm a bit confused if they are included or not.
