Does it make a difference if you use lipos? We don't have any lipos or a brushless motor. All we have brushed motors and ep4200s. The JBRL doesn't allow them so we haven't had a reason to buy them. I need to know where to buy them if needed.

You dont have to use LiPo's.. but they are allowed.

SRS sells them if you come out.

No you can use standard batteries. We have not seen huge differences.

The weight of the cars will still have to meet specs regardless.

I think the majority of people will be using standard 6 cell configurations anyway.

We had some people that do not have 6 cell batteries anymore wanting to race but couldn't because they are exclusively Lipo now.

Jimmy will have to step up to the times eventually,

I just picked up a buggy I might try to make it. I am sure I will make a offroad race or 2 @ SRS before then. Any setup help for a BK2 would be great, tires? turn motor? 12t? 13t? I was thinking of 12d would that be about right? Great to see you open it up to lipo's. We have been running them in our pancars and it's great!

Thanks, I rather spend my money on a brushless system since there is no maintance and he will be club racing at you track. Most races are under 10 minutes and 4200s should be good to go. At least his times will not change as the motor doesn't need cutting. He got bumped out of the top three at the shootout because he was a half second slower per lap. The pros must have some wicked motors. See you this Saturday for some racing. He loves to race with the best and SRS has some excellent drivers.

Sean, are you guys going to run the track dry or wet? Just want to make sure I have right tires. Do you have both in stock?
