As far as the batteries, it wasn't what I was saying, it was what the people over on the other forum were saying. Do you read anything I post or just generalize in order to make yourself sound right? I never said anything about banning people...I'm really not sure why this has turned into such a flame war.

What's Pegasus selling them for?
$199

"No Lipo" IS banning people that have lipo.

If you wanna hand out batteries...that's fine by me, but I'm not going out to buy some POS stick packs. HB at least gives them away when they require them. I'm certainly not throwing any more money down that rat hole.

People that run Lipo, do it to AVOID battery drama and save money...not because they're some super-secret speed deal. When people start making a big deal about them (writing them out of the rules), then we gotta speak up in order to stop the insanity.

Hey I really didn't try to get in an argument. I wish I knew a combination of rules that would make everyone happy. That's why I wanted to add weight to trucks running lipos....I figured no one could have any squabbles about that but man I was wrong.

Joe - I vote for a cease and desist. Peace?

You're right I shouldn't have asked I'm just wondering if it's the same price that Gyro is selling them for.

I wouldn't do it on their forum...but this isn't their forum. BTW -- Speedtech has them in stock for $199 as well.

http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...nid=52&id=7559

PM me and I can pick you one up today. I'll deliver it to your house for free. I'll take a phone pic of us shaking hands for Stitchy.

No need for a cease and desist...I'm still gonna talk trash in person. It's just that for some reason, males seem to not be able to deal with it when it's on an LCD screen...but they're just fine if it happens face to face in a shop or on an LCD once everyone knows each other...LOL...come on out this weekend and you'll see how much fun we have.

Then you can come on here and talk trash about Stitchy's "girly car"

Man, nice guys do finish last. Turbo, you can expect a nice, juicy T-bone this Saturday and I'm not talking steaks.

Bone me? Damn dude...I can't believe you said that on here. That's a whole new side of you.

All this "Spec VS. Non-Spec" is the same thing we're dealing with in on-road with the Kyosho Infeno GT cars.

Some just don't like the idea of an economical R/C racing class centered around 1 product or they don't like rules.

Makes you wonder what would happen to NASCAR if everyone wanted to do their own mods to their cars,

Anyway, check the Griz's video of the Slash again.

it IS sold as a 1/10th scale truck, maybe if you were paying attention instead of trolling you'd know that - so it has nothing to do with "practicing what you preach"
