Default POLL: Lipo or Nimh

With all the battery talk just figured it would be interesting to see the numbers.

Which one do you prefer and does your home track allow lipo usage?




Im overall neutral.

I've already signed up for a big race this fall that only allows NIMH and that race will be the last time I ever use NIMH. I can't wait to put all my sub c crap up for sale here on rctech.

Lipo +1
