I'd bet the new Kyosho cars are designed with LiPos and brushless systems in mind, if nothing else.
Sooner the better for my money, had an Ib 3800 cell go after 3 charges

with recent releases of RB5 and revised TF5, looks like this deal will complement Kyosho's serious tilt at EP racing.

who knows, big K might even push the lipo agenda based on the good work that Orion has done (e.g. setting an informal benchmark for lipos .. ).

One word..............MiniZ's

All kidding aside I am sure I will find wheel time through my day job and I actually am quite ready to enjoy a life where I actually get 2 days off a week. Not that working the track is so hard but it is work and it does take the whole day. I will miss the locals but most of them I am sure I will still see.

I was only referring to the previous question not the over all topic of the thread.
