So there Ya go.My vote....dont care.Either way.Both I suppose.We all have to move over to the new technology sooner or later.Lets do it and let people move when they afford to.(financially and techwise).On another note...anybody hear from Craig???Jer...racing in Middletown this sunday...Gas and electric.Anyone else interested?See the thread.M

no brushless. we tried it, i ran brushless against the track motors, no comparison...way more speed nd torque. lets just do one thing at a time. work on the lipo situation now.

Just got back from the track.Spoke to Bill.(of course this could change)..He said he doesn't care much about running LIPO as long as the charging bag is used and the charger is a LIPO charger.Brushless ....17.5 mixed with stock is cool with him also.No 13.5 for now.So....let me throw something in....Who's up for the rubber class????Anyhoo.....

Easy...easy...The owner is the word.Jeramy was,I think,just voicing his opinion based on his experiences.I don't think anyone is gonna Beeotch about the brushless with the brushed. I think he posted before I did about Bills comments.I think the LIPO issue is dead now...It's been OK'd by Bill...as per my previous post.Foams or rubber...Thats the next issueWill most likely be a foam AND rubber class this winter again.I,personaly,am all for rubber.MUCHO FUN.But,if the majority wants foam...so be it.More fun to race more people.BUT,everyone should give rubber a try...You might be suprised.ANNNNd,as the world/issues turn..Next???Mario.

there is no need 2 limit the lipo battery MAH all that affects is runtime trust me i use 3600's and have just as much speed and power at the guys rinning the 5400's they just have more runtime and they are still equil to nimh
i race aginnst them on a weekly basis in stock and we are alll equip

4800 nimh 8-10 min or so
3600lipo 10min or so
5400 lipo 20-25 min or so

but thats up 2 u guys im just speeking from experience

im planing on geting a touring car once again offroad is no agreeing with my drivng style

id b up for a runner class fpr the few times i will show up jaco ribbers greens seem 2 be the hot tire now


17.5 is very comparable to 27t

13.5 is 19t i beet 19t all the time with my 13.5 in offroad

If you can't fix it with a hammer, then you have an electrical problem.
