You could also consider the BMI (asphalt) conversion kit.
It's made out of 2.25mm, but the stiffness stays the same because of the different kind of carbon fiber that is used and the price isn't that high either (somewhere around $100).

Um there should be a few shops which stock them....
Did you try contacting rc-champ?
Email them at [email protected] if you can get a quote tonight and the item paid for by friday (PayPal) they should have it in the post on saturday and the item to you a couple of days later.

Towerhobbies says they have them in stock.

Locally, did you try calling or emailing frontline they may have stock but not have it listed on their website.

If you are desperate there is also a 3racing cyclone main chassis.

On the right it says in stock limited quantities.
If you order 9 of them it will say how many they have in stock it is usually pretty close unless they only have one left.....

But if price is a factor i would contact rc-champ first

If you order a few things dont forget to use the discount code...

No. All I was saying is that you are giving creedence to the fact that if set-up and geared properly, thermalling and electronic failure would be drastically reduced.

To the guy that asked if Andy Moore thermals (or something to that effect), I dont think he is the sanctioning body spokesperson for 5 cell. He, like many others are just going by the rules. My point merely is, if pushing for 5 cell is due to thermal and electronic failure, then people need to look at set-ups, not always the equipment. In fact, now that there are cells that can accomodate longer run times, then to lessen heating issues, how about lengthening the race?!?!? It used to be adjust your car to get the most out of the cells...now that the cells can go easily for 5 minutes, how about accomodating the race to the cells, making drivers maximize their battery output?

BX, i have to agree with you on this. longer races means more wheeltime and that means more enjoyment, starting from club level. in South Africa, there has been a move, albeit small, in the Johnson 540 class. we now run 6 minute quali's and finals. it's a small start, but it got the ball rolling. like the guys in 12th scale are having a blast. they have 8min races which are awesome.

well, i will be running a 3hour enduro at one of the clubs this weekend. so plenty of wheeltime there

Its easyer to make 1350g with brushed equipment, its lighter.
I'm not sure I've ever seen any right down to 1350g with 5 cell brushless though, lots of lightweight products available, might be quite expensive though.
I think here in the UK most driver of 5 cell are around the 1400g mark.

Now wouldn't it be great to keep the 1400g mark and instead of making it 5 cell mandatory, make it an option and allow folks to run li-po? Li-po packs are lighter, enabling li-po guys to compete. If, as some folks have pointed out, that 5 cell is equally fast, then why have 5 cell be the rule as opposed to the option?? Figure, run 5 cells, add weights to make it 1350g. Run 6 cells or 2s2p and shed items to get down to 1350g. All in all, the playing field would be competitive because EVERYONE would get to compete to see what is the better set-up.
