Yeah, I switched totally to lipo at the beginning of the carpet season, sold all my nimh cells and treatment equipment. I used all that money to buy a totally maintenance free setup!
Hopefully the rules up there will ease up on the lipos.

Cool. Good idea. I have one. The track I race at requires the bag and a personal extinguisher.

i was up at marshalls yesterday and ran my elec. tc on the asphalt. it wasnt bad but i would suggest to bill that we need some sort of compound to spray on the track because the track is just so loose even with compound on tires. im thinkin the kind of stuff jamie used at his track like the grape soda or sumthin like that. also bill did fix the one exit turn by the drivers stand by putting some nonslip grip tape over the crack. btw, we should get a poll goin to see how many people are going to race the road cours, and wat they will race.
heres the classes that should run :
electric touring car
nitro tc
mini 18r
F1
mini cooper
W/E else sumbody has to add

Add Spec Touring into the classes. However I don't know how big it will be without Tony and Aron.
