What was the comparison, all ballasted up with half a ton of lead Colin>
re;matching
after all these years i do agree with you it seems that batts`s have to be matched one way or another

when brushless wa released it was put around `that`s it for brushed `motor company`s ,every one will have brushless motors all the time from now on
no they haven`t ,they have there own market just like Li-Po can have it`s own

cpmparison

stewart kit , T2,4 pks of GP37`s,roar 8.9
colin (me) evo4 1pk of Peak Li-Po ,monster 8.5
raced against my friend (yes i still have one) stewart beven down sidcup
he had roar i had monster both were same speed down straight , i had slight edge out of corners , but thats about it

raced against darren simpson (eastbourne guy`s) same place no probs either
LI-Po doesn`t give you out right top speed , it`s the fact only 1 pk will do you what ever time scale race meet you go to , i can race top up & look after harry with he`s FK05 at the same time
stewart was racing ,making sure he`s gp37`s were nearly fully charged (don`t work as good other wise) then traying them put them away

used then down barham when i done 3 x 18 309.00 race time`s
mark trinder was not happy seeing it go round ,it was so fast , so i swithced over to IB38`s & IP37`s from Peak Li-po & co27 to a monster & it went just the same speed
it`s the `VERY LOW` maintenace that i like during the race & AFTER the race ,just race top it up ,then race again ,top it up straight after your race again & that`s it & on & on ariston & on & on

if you think putting a peak Li-Po in your car instead of 60.00 IB or GP 42`/43`s is going to make your car supersonic your wrong
you get a tad more punch ,but if your is crap on track then it will show up being crap

jus think how much them fancy battery matching trays are now CTXD 140.00, Team Wave thingy 160.00
your telling me you need these ,how about the guy`s that can`t afford this type of crap ,is it fair on them ,if anything it just frustrates them
If they use Peak Li-Po it would get rid of this `I`m considerably Richer then you` statement`s in the pit`s

Disclaimer
think i`m talking jibberish now (sorry)

Thats an interesting comparison, so basicaly, ballasted up, your motor is still only putting out the same power and heat build up, much as I thought, so for racing, the only advantage is you need just the one pack.

Still, I am sure we will get spun the line that the four cells in the pack will still need 'matching' and then 'balancing' during use.

For them to become legal for racing, I would like to see...

Case construction like the Team Orion

and either

Cells MUST come with the voltage protection to stop over discharge

OR ESC's MUST be LiPo compatible

I much prefer the first though, as it makes older stuff not obsolete.

yes to the power output
maybe a little better in it`s efficency delivering it to the motor But
Peak Li-Po goes up to 8.4v peak before stopping charging unlike c-cells they go up to 9.2v then drop dramaticly down to 8.6v 8.7v but Peak Li-Po will stay longer in the higher volt range unlike c-cells they have more drop off

you still got to gear the motor right in the first place for these things to work
Peak Li-Po has balencer built in allready
in the case (like Orion/peak jobbie) is a must & not the `soft` skin type
Peak are doing another one to make use of the slot`s in the chassis (more secure fitment) also lesser capacity

Why not just pass the Peak case one only ,just see how they fair next year
to many Li-Po`s winning then rethink !!
i would only like to see them in 27t & 19t classes though
not keen on the amp draw in mods to how the PEAK Li-Po would cope
spoke to 2-3 guy`s about this & they are under the impression the Peak Li-Po would go up in smoke in mod race`s
but then hammer drills use Li-Po

keep a eye on the BIWS (they are legal this year) by the way
