So, IMO, just be patient and positive, I do belive they will release something new later that works great not only for Lipo friendly but probably something else too which I don't know yet since I'm not sponsored either.
its not that he was whining about the car being lipo-friendly, he wants a car that had a better way to secure the battery pack - because he seems to crash alot

everyone else knows, HPI/HB will release the lipo-friendly chassis when it passed all the tests

Korey,

Are you running a cut Middle Deck ?
If so, how much difference did it make for you ?

I had my TC out today with a complete new setup based primarily on Hara's with a few custom changes of my own based on my recent bedtime reading on setup theory. The initial setup worked quite well and got even better when I lowered the rear RC a bit.

Cheers

What and give away my fortune to be made! Actually i figured since every one seem seems to be moving the pack out a little anyway I would just make room for the reciever on the battery side under the top deck and widen the chassis just a touch on both sides. The motor already hangs out almost to the tire so i would think moving the battery out just a little might help the balance. My original thought was to stand the servo up 1/8 scale style on the battery side but that might be a bit much. I also want to eliminate the battery slots so the flex is even side to side. Just mill out a pocket for the pack.

Thats good to hear! It's a pretty solid base setup that works in a variety of conditions.

I am running the cut rear deck outside on parking lot tracks. It just seems to smooth out the car a bit. It's more consistent overall in lower grip conditions.

Nope. Traction was pretty dang good despite using those horrid tires... So there wasn't much need to cut the rear deck.

I think the cut middle deck also works great on "Super" high bite to free up the rear. May be we should have tried?

Yellow: 12.8 lb/in
Grey: 14.0 lb/in
Black: 15.1 lb/in
Purple: 16.2 lb/in
Red: 17.3 lb/in

Oh, the new black colored silver and gold springs are the same as the old ones. They started coloring them black a few months ago.

Cool, thanks Korey!
