Same thing. I use the term "Glow Ignitor" cause its geekier though.

I used to run a 800mah nicad 5 cell pack. I'd run it for about a half hour then recharge.

Now I run a 1000 mah Lipo and am good for an hour. I usually recharge it after 30-40 mins runtime.

And no one told me it was a blood sport. Lots of new scars on the legs. And one on the side of the head. They need to put a beeper on them 'Lectriks.

It's to the point we need to pass out hockey gear to the marshals now! Especially when Brad is on the track!
