Look to see brushless first then Lipos down the road some.. I know at my local track there were 75 enteries last week and there were no Lipos yet. I know they are coming just waiting to see what the MFGs bring in the upcoming months. Im sure there may be some slight changes and such. So when they become most popular most all will join as some part involvement..

Keep us updated when you start to add thses products to your line!

The club level bashers are not going to pay the premimum price that the 1% as you call them are willing to pay for product. When the club racers at my track run 3300 venom stick packs because they are cheap and only get a brushless because they only have one car and don't want to invest in a lathe because they don't go out of town to race. We have a few brushless people at our track but no lipos yet. They next thing is all you have to do is resell a brushless or lipo as there are not widely available equipment to test and match then. So why sell them when a basher can go to tower and buy what they think has no added value cheaper. It's lucky for Tag and others like EA that see the writing on the wall knowing that taking a stock block and honing it out pre say is still of value to the 1% but when it comes done to brushless and lipos, some of the small motor companies that do not have the capital to invest in the new testing rigs are going to be out of business.

Yeah he is selling to the Top 1% of RACERS that race Big races...LOL

Tell me why A "Small" company like eXpress, EA or any of the other "Small" motor/battery companies would waste the time and money on lipo right now!!

Look at Trinity and Orion, two of the Biggest companies to sell batteries and motors. They actually have the resources to "play with lipo's...Seems that Orion is offering new Lipos every few months. So it is STUPID for the small comapnies to JUMP right now on the LIPO side of things and TRY to sell tot he .01% of the "Pro Truck" guys in NC!!!!!!!

It also seems that the 1% you are talking about is doing Tags and EA pretty well.....they sell out of cells the day they get them! I bet that Orion isn't selling out of LIPO's as soon as they get them...

Now the real question is WHY did you come on here and jump right in on eXpress? You had to make a screen name and go post some " " CRAP's in two places then your next 2 post are on here trying to stir some CRAP!

I am going to Vegas to celebrate my B-day (Sept. 29th)!

So just a heads up, if you want one of your teammates to be able to see you run your main on Sun. you better not be in any of the lower mains.... cause I am sure I will not be able to get up early or continue to hold my eyes open after the all night celebration LOL
