Well, since all they are doing is allowing 5 cell not forcing you to run 5 cell whats the problem. Run 6 cells.

That said...if you run Mod Buggy you can run 5 cell and on most tracks for most drivers its faster than 6 cell.

if onroad became 5 cell and offroad stayed 6 it could pose problems for some..

it is my understanding that no one is suggesting adding more classes i.e. 5 cell stock, 6 cell stock, 5 cell 19t, 6 cell 19t, the discussion was, should 5 cells be allowed in stock with the weight reduction to race against 6 cell. or did i miss something?

You would be correct... I was stating my opinion on why i think roar would go to 5 cell and allow brushless for all classes before they would allow lipo.

thats fine. and actually i have been running the 13.5 for quite a while now and would like it very much if there was a roar class for it at nats. i'm thinking the masters class would be a perfect place to "test' it out. were just a bunch of old guys avoiding the "real" racing anyway

sorry off topic. my bad.

I think 5 cell will come before lipo.... Here is my reasoning.. We come off the track with 1500mah in stock right now and a good 900 or more in 19t. So why the heck would you want to run a lipo pack and use even less of the pack while your running your 5 minutes. We go 5 cell and make everyone run the 5 minute race and come off the track with 300 or so mah left in the cells and actually use the entire pack.

Running lipo in a 5 minute race is like buying 1 gallon of paint to paint the front door of your house... When you really only need a quart of paint.

One IB4200 cell has 4200mah of power. A six cell has 4200 mah of power. The ammount of capacity is not reduced. Run time will acctually be increased.
