Lipo is way better than nimh

1.) In the long run lipo typically lasts twice as long as nimh which means by the time your lipo is shot you would have paid for two nimh batteries.

2.) run time is way longer

3.) I notice more punch and top speed but cant figure out why because my old nimh batteries are the same voltage as my lipos

4.) they are way lighter if weight is an issue for offroad.

5.) NO MORE STEAMIN HOT NIMHS AFTER RUNING YOUR CAR HARD FOR EIGHT MINUTES

6.) very easy to keep the lipo's in the best shape as possible with lipo balancers equalling each cell, extending the batteries life

the voltage on your nm pack drops that intial peak as soon as u pull the trigger and is at a lower voltage than a lipo and lipo has much lower internal resitance

I Myself find myself faster with a stick pack, seem to keep it planted better with more weight. And more control over the car.
