yeah, from talking with Pat the owner of RC Lipos it sounds like the 3200s just came in today.

At $250, why not just put 2 X 2S 40C 5000mAh packs back to back? I would think there should at least be a little savings with a 4S package. At $250, no thank you. I can pick up 2 X 2S TP 40C 5000's for $220 elsewhere.

I don't mind other people running hard cased batteries, I just don't want any rules stating I have to use them to race.

I dont see why this rule is any different then body rules or any other governing rule of racing.

Hard case is mainly a protection thing. True 95% of the people may never need a hard case. But I have seen people drop stuff on soft case packs. Have seen another car come down right where the batteries are on a buggy. If he had soft cases it would have been interesting to see. His plastic case was cracked. truthfully the rule is more about protecting you from others then others from you.

What I would rather have seen is roar require a battery case in the car that was completely enclosed. Then we could put what we want in there and still have the protection. Then you can see the batteries for signs of puffing. Only problem is people having the batteries outside of the car case again.
