i really doubt your driving skills are high enough to notice the difference. you're not Hara, Rheinard or Masami....
I have not tried it, so I do not know. Anyway, that was not my point. Perhaps it is time to switch to another brand, since I would get killed for simply pointing out some flaws in HB's products. Why waste my hard earned money?

Yeah, HB...listen to your customers...we want:

1. A chassis designed specifically for Lipo.
2. A chassis designed specifically for 5 cells.
3. A chassis designed specifically for 6 cells.
4. A chassis designed specifically for asphalt.
5. A chassis designed specifically for carpet.
6. An extra thick chassis designed specifically for rookies.
7. A chassis that is scratch resistant for asphalt.
8. A special edition anodized in Blue but has a REAL winner's name associated to it.

Or you don't have to listen to your customer and just keep doing what you are doing with upgraded parts every so often for a well designed and proven chassis.

if you haven't tried it.. how do you know its a flaw?

my point to you is, dont complain about an asymmetrical upper deck.

your other post mentions you crashed so hard your tape broke. you should worry about driving clean before you worry about an asymmetrical upper deck.

your beef with HB is securing your lipos, not an upper deck design.

Obviously, no one read what I was trying to say. Scott just got so anxious in bashing once he saw an opportunity I wonder why he is so defensive.

I have been waiting and waiting, hoping HB has been working on a good solution that doesn't require their customers to make time consuming customizations. And yes, I am very dissapointed. The unsymetrical upper deck that they just released is simply an ad hoc bug fix, which doesn't really resolve the problem for securing lipo packs. What are they thinking? Now I feel like I am at an disadvantage driving a Cyclone. I truly hope HB will come out with a more thoughtful solution very soon. Is it really that difficult?
Perhaps what you see as a "problem" isn't to many that run the HB car. After all, those that have been around a while are familiar with battery tape and its weaknesses. Perhaps you need a better brand of tape to hold the battery in your car? The new top deck really only addresses the clearance issue with larger batteries. It handles the problem quite well. It has also been said that in the future the next car that HB develops will be more LIPO friendly out of the box. You should not feel like you're at an disadvantage running a HB car as it is one of the BEST handling cars on the market.

By the way, the Xray and Corally solutions are offered by the manufacturers' themself, not after market parts.

I wish some management people from HB see this thread and get you fired. If you are really representing HB, you are giving them a bad name.

Your response says that HB do not care about what customers think, just take it or leave it. A company who cannot take customer's opinion seriously will eventually go down. Well, I guess you won't know much about that.
1. Quoted it so he doesn't edit this to cover up the "fired" bit. Screams idiot IMO.
2. Wouldn't it be easier to just put him on your ignore list?

I don't run for HB... Sell your car and get one that does care about their customers. Scotty should be able to tell you to phuck off and not worry about because he is the reason EVERYONE runs a HB in the norcal area....but he isn't like that. If the company goes down then we won't have to worry about you asking anymore questions right????
