PM Johnnyboy, he is getting OCD Lipo plates in on Monday. I'm on the waiting list to pick a couple up. He should be able to help you.

It is a SS plate that you can stick under a lipo battery to bring the weight back up in the car. The plate under the battery helps to keep the wieght low and centered in the car. It allows you to run lipo and nimh without changing your setup to compensate for the considerable weight difference.

Here's the e-mail I've been sending out, thanks for your patience guys!:

Hi Guys,

I will have the next batch of steel plates in on Monday (The holidays messed things up for me as they are a small company and took extended holidays). I will post up a new thread when I have them in my hand and PM everyone who PM'd me as they will get first crack at them in order. Thanks!

Oh yeah pics of the plates are here: http://rctech.net/forum/showpost.php...postcount=2259

Dimensions are: L=137mm W=44mm T=2.6mm (4.5oz)

I may also have a few in a slighty thinner 2.2mm (will be a bit lighter)

John

I wasn't going to, but maybe there is enough interest to do another run. I'll check with the company who made them for me on Monday.
