[QUOTE=Bulldawg RC;4682192]make the switch to lipo, you will never regret it!!!



Try explaining that to some of the guys over on RC Universe. It's under a thread called "Why are some people still wasting their money on Nimh batteries" Some people swear that Nimh is still the way to go.

Apparently there are some grown men in this hobby that are afraid of using Lipo packs because of the bad reputation they got for blowing up.

I didn't even mention anything about Trakpower on this thread, i was simply stating that "once you make the switch to lipo you will not use nimh anymore". I am sorry if you don't want to check out the site but i can tell you that i have helped many people on rctech and i started this company to help out my fellow racers. So if i can help you in any way i will always try my best.

I think a lot of the problems folks had with LiPo were early on and a carry over from the r/c air guys.... Wrong type of charging and early cell technology. I have a couple of Orion (Kokam) packs.. a 3200 and 4800.. I love them.. but.. a good 4200 NiMh pack will have more peak and average voltage by quite a bit. Even with the weight differences a good NiMh will out perform the LiPo.

At our local track more than half the folks have at least some LiPo packs.. no one mishap.. but there are people popping NiMh all the time!

Integy.. well.. use email.. English isn't their primary language... lol.. I have been buying from them for at least 10 years..
