its pretty close and the best thing is tires last longer and the motor comes off the track around 103 degrees!!

I'm not a massive fan of having different cell counts for the 3 main electric classes, but i think 4 cell doesn't suit Touring (by how things looked in Japan, and a post from Chris Granger on a UK forum - he raced there), and it seems that motors can no longer take 6 cell in touring.

So if you take the classes on their own, 4 is fine for 12th, and it looks like 5 is a reasonable solution for touring. Off road really depends on where you race. If you race on dirt in the US 5 is fine, but on high grip tracks in Europe 5 wouldn't be so good, so maybe off rd is best off with 6 still.

In offroad if you go to 5 cells you can easily motor up or down to get the proper speed for the track or surface your running on. Lets say on high dgrip tracks you run 10 turns and on low grip track you run 13 turns if you go to 5 cell you can drop to a 7 or 8 for high grip and 10-11 for low grip. The 1.2volts you remove will make your motor hold up longer and you have more options on weight shifting in your car.

I wander with Tamiya guys who race in Tamiya Championship Series. 4 cells with Mabuchi Silver

Anyway, I still race EP though...... I still own Yokomo BD, Tamiya MSX, and few Mini Coopers.

Mini coopers is the most fun to race while stock 23T is the most boring to race. Modified race is much better because I love speed.

EFRA will run 5 cells.......for now. I see change their rule to 4 cell in the near future to match the worldwide competition. I also agree that brushless will be the future. Has anyone tried a Mamba Max 7700 with 4 cells?

It would be nice if everyone when either 4 or 5 cells. 4 cells would be nice so you can run touring car and 12thscale with the same packs. I for 4 cell all the way.

I guess the screen backlight would be really bright, though. Well, for the first few charges, anyway.

Bet the 115 morons who voted for Mike Queller feel wonderful right about now....

Dumb dumb dumb decision....

But I guess I gotta look at the bright side....get to sell more batteries with no worries about switching to lipo.....48 lipos don't and won't ever exsist anytime soon...


Later EddieO

The reason why new packs are needed in 4 cell mod racing is because they were dumping hard on the track which removes runtime from that pack. If 6 cell mod racers dump the pack hard on the track the same thing will happen it has nothing to do with the pack being a 4 cell pack.

It seems that most of the problems were seeing today come from modified racing. It also seems like some racers want to go as fast as possible so maybe we should keep the mod class as it is and let the ones who feel speed is the only cool thing pay for all the wear and tear. Let the speed control manufactureres figure out ways from keeping there speedos from burning up and let the BL and regular motor builders figure out how to keep a motor to hold up for an entire run.

Then we can drop to 5 cell racing for the other classes to actually help with the wear and tear and if some feel it's to slow they can race in the mod class.

Bottom line is that it's worth to try something as with any change it takes time to adapt to it but not trying anything isn't the solution.
