FYI, Butter and I race toghter all the time here in FL so we give each other a hard time about all kind of stuff but its all in fun.

He is one of the funniest guys I know and should probably charge people money to hang out with him.

LAZER, LAZER.... to the main stage!

If you ask me, either XRAY or Losi is going to be the next big trend in a few years.
Mind you, XRAY's already a trend. Heck, I'm even racing it! (It's all about the peer pressure)

I hate when people make threads where all people do is complain about the new batch of TC's.

HA!!! It is all in good fun. In all seriousness, the new MI3 (LL3) looks good and should be equally good on the track. I wish it were possible to peacefully co-exist on these threads...like brothers.....hand in hand....united...... Ahhhh who the heck am I kidding!!

Where are all the people complaining that they have to update their cars too often just to "keep up" now?

If batteries change to LiPo or something like it for serious racing, you could see a change. They're SO much lighter, and could potentially be so much smaller if not required to fit into traditional battery slots that it could usher in a whole new era of chassis design. If you were going to make, say, Orion's 3200 pack as small as possible, what kind of space would you need for it? Smaller, lighter batteries may open the door for new ideas.

Presumably, R/C will one day move to a lighter battery for all its needs. If the weight requirements are changed as a result, who knows what'll happen. I look forward to seeing the first competition chassis designed with light batteries in mind. How long ya think, 5 years?

Lighter cars will lead to softer tires and lead us back to flexible chassis.
Yeah 5 years?
OH and everyone will make a center mount battery. Not till then.

The cells are very flat. I imagine you could easily make your topdeck just slightly taller than the chassis and mount them on top down the center or something. You'd probably see lots of designs with centered motors, or batteries down the middle, motor on one side, electronics on the other.

I'm just speculating, I don't know crap about designing a car. It's an interesting thought, though. I imagine we'll see it happen one day. One the one hand, I think it will take forever. On the other hand, it's not unreasonable to think LiPo will be legalized in the next couple of years, and with it, possibly a reduction in weight requirements. If that were to happen, you might see companies scramble to design a car to make the most of it.

Not to mention lighter cars will add some glamour to the old motors by making them all just a little faster and more efficient less wear and tear all around.
A win win.
I guess there's a lot of way's to put a spark into the hobby. Weight is just one. I would like to design a car. I would mix a little of every car into one, and dedicate it to the hobby, in appreciation to the entire industry and any one who makes it what it is. But then I would be accused of INNOVATING a sneaky way of steeling some one Else's Idea or improving it.
Some how I can picture 2 cave men pushing rocks with sticks.

Syndrome are you talking like put the battery on its side down the middle? I guess that would be a way to less'n the width of the chassis. Very interesting?
I can see how the longer a arm's could help with rubber racing. You could actually mold the top plate around the battery?
