I've already raced mine in 19T class on carpet. It was very, very impressive. As was mentioned here before, how much of a increase in speed and punch you see will depend on how good your regular packs are.
What I mean is, if you use $70-$80 packs with 1.2+ volts, then the Platinum will likely feel about the same with a slight boost from the weight loss.
If however, you use $45-$55 middle of the road packs with around 1.19v, then you will notice quite a difference in speed and punch.
And of course, theres the comfort of knowing you'll end the race at the same speed you started it at, and you'll never dump...
