So back to the rules... So ROAR may not be used by everyone but its a basis for rules for many clubs. How to you fairly intigrate the new batteries that are 7.4volts into an RC race industry that runs 7.2volts as the standard? Dont go on about how the voltage is not the issue its IR, thats bs, voltage is higher thats a fact, they also seem to run longer then NIHM cells, does anyone have some discharge curves of these packs at 30amps so that we can see how they compare to a current legal 3800 or even a 4200?
Everytime a new NIHM cell comes out guys say the 200-300mah post wont be noticed yet the first chance racers can get there hands on them they jump on them. Fact is every time a new cell comes out there is improvements(not including p170s and panosonics 3000cell
Im not against them im just concerned about how you intigrate them, it would be like a new stock motor coming out that is 26turn instead of 27turn. WE dont follow ROAR but we do right? Without ROAR there would not be stock racing.... The 26t motor comes with all kinds of great numbers and eveyone is horny to run one but there not tru stock motors they dont fit the rules. "Oh but its only 1 turn less! they cry" "its only .2volts common they are the same" Are they? No. So without the usual bashing how about some facts and figuers to compare the lipo to nihm.
Anyone with a discharge curve image?
This is a big topic i think, once they become excepted in racing circles there is going to be some major changes in battery matching... Perhaps the downfall of many ma and pa matching companies?
