I'm not chicky but in my experience alum pulleys tend to sharpen over a short time and strip your belts faster. .02

I have been running one for a little over a year. I use a novak voltage regulator to protect the electronics and to prevent over dis-charging of the battery.

The li-po gives very fast servo speeds for the entire battery charge life and they weight about 1/2 as much as ni-cads.

What brand and size are you running?

I was thinking of getting the brass tray to put the weight back where it should be. Maybe going with a 1500 or 1700 li-po?

So, people buy lipo, to save weight, and offcourse a new charger for the lipo, then they buy also a brass battery tray, to gain the lost weight?.....

I have been running Venom 1250mah pack with a Novak 5460 servo regulator (voltage regulator).

I was originally concerned about the safety of li-po batteries because of some of the stories I had heard about fires. I charged my battery with a Multiplex 92531 charger at 1 amp and I never had any problems with the battery at all. I liked the fact that the speed and the torque of the servos stayed very fast right up until the voltage regulator cutting off the battery.

Be sure to secure the battery to the radio plate. You don't want it banging around. Also be sure to use a li-po charger and charge at 1 to 1.5 amps and you won't have any trouble.

More power, longer runtime.

I have been running Li-Po batteries in my electric sedans for a couple of years now. I have the multiplex charger, works great and is only 75 bucks!

I just wanted to try a li-po in the gas car but didn't know if anyone has had problems doing it. It does give you more runtime per MAH than NIMH cells.

To answer M7H, yes, I want a LI-PO to get more runtime and I want to get the brass tray to get the weight back and Cg back in check.

i ordered mine from pro-futaba in japan, ask for Mr. Soeda, this shop normally doesn't stock since it is pricy, it is per order basis.
