Trays are being used, one idea is to allow left/right weight adjustment.

What I don't understand is why not just go to a milder motor with 6 cells? If someone is running a 4.5 with 5 cell wouldn't you get the same result with a 5.5 and 6 cells.

you are right you dont get the same results , you actually will get better results!!!! try it first like i did , i ran the car 3 heats on saturday with the 5 cell chassis then 3 heats on sunday with 6 cells and on sunday i was over a half of second per lap slower!!! than saturday with 5 cells and by the way i do have the 5.5 and i ran faster with 5 cells too!!! i have every motor from 3.5 to 13.5 (orion and novak)

What is the purpose of 5 cell?
The cars were faster at the Reedy, are they trying to make the cars faster ?

keeps the motor and esc temps down and tire wear is also better, last state race my motor never got above 120 degrees even with the outside temperature at 97 degrees and track temps over 130 degrees

Marcos, you kinda killed my theory (!) about why 5 cell is faster than 6 cell for most of us. My original idea was that those frickin 3.5 - 4.5 brushless motors make the cars overpowered. So once you go 5 cell that slows the car down making it more driveable so improving laptimes. I played around with lipo packs and did not see huge improvement on laptimes by taking off 60-70g (which I can do and still balance the car). So I was kinda hesitating to beliee that the lighter car is the root cause...

Now you saying the same is true for 13.5 that motor for sure is not too much for most of us...

id think this to!

why is it faster? speed punch faster... or just smoother laps?
