Is there a weight requirement? Lipos are lighter than sub c batteries. We still use sub c cells and they weight more. I'll have to cancel our battery order and get some lipos.

Thanks, we'll use our cells. Looking forward to your series at SRS. Racing on a blue groove is our set-up.

Why the 5000mah limit on all but 19T?

I have actually changed the website to reflect that any "Hard Cased" lipos will be allowed. All classes.

Only hard case? Other races allow a non hard case LiPos with a Liposack.

Yeah and the 4wd people will pretty much all be out of luck since there are no saddle pack hard cased lipos. Like Alex said, most races are allowing any Lipo as long as a lipo sack or battery bunker is used for charging. The CRCRC race this coming week is that same way.
Almost all the local racers running lipo are running the MaxAmps packs purchased at SRS. They will all be SOL.
