You are right Niznai lipos are every where I handle them with caution and follow the manufactors instructions for charging their lipo. Recently, I ordered a lipo and it arrived carefully wrapped up and packaged.......when I took it out of the box it started swelling up. I handle lipo with caution being careful not to drop them or cross the positive and neg. I store lipos in my workshop away from my house, in a steel storage box

Really fellas? This seemed to have turned into a nitro vs electric thread and it did so from the start. It doesnt matter what you like. Your choice is just that. Your choice. If you like fat girls, Im almost positive you'll have your reason as to why you like them and Im sure someone will have their reasons as to why someone shouldnt like fat girls. But thurth be told, anytime a nitro thread is started about speed, there's alway an electric guy comparing the 2. Let it go. It is what it is.

I like both types of cars gas & electric. In the wintertime I like to run electrics inside you should not run gas inside the fumes from the gas & nitro are deadly. In the spring time I like to run my gas and nitro cars. I don't care which type of car is the fastest. I like roadracing. Our A main races usually last 45 min the electric cars have a hard time keeping up with us because their pit stops take longer removing their batteries and putting fresh ones in. He is working on a quick release system for his batteries so he can get in and out of the pits faster.

Nice! I'm going to try a .26 when the weather gets nice on my RS4-3.
Hoping to scrape the 110's I've been running 30% the whole time so I am going to try some 60% boat fuel.

I hope you don't go super lean with that high percentage of nitro.

It has been a while since I ran that much nitro, I think you may need some head shims for your motor. Ask GT100 he would know.

Honestly, couldnt tell you. I havent ran 60% in many many years. I've been sticking to my locally sourced 30% with great results. I prefer the local stuff since I know its fresh and will be consistent.

Not sure which 26 youre going to use but a 21 would be a better fit for any 1/10 speed car. A decent 21 will out rev anything larger and will still have decent torque to keep it going. The motor Im currently running is the Novarossi Elite7 from The Nitro Shop and its amazing. I've gone 114 with it. 110 on cold first pass. And that was with the GPS strapped to the car.
