Default newb questions...

2.do your club races alow lipo batteries? i contacted my local on road race cordinator, just whaiting on his response.
3.why do people run a front one way? how dose it affect the cars handeling?
4.do your local races have a class for brushless?
5.why do brushless esc's have fans?
6.ive seen motors over heat, what could cause this?
7.are lipo more powerfull then the matched cell nimh packs?
8.heating tiers gives you more traction, right?
9.nimh packs seem realy confusing, are they as complicated as they sound?
10.why do you have to build your batterie packs?
11.should i spend the extra and get a tc5 or get a x-ray t2r?
12.why do all the pros run the mazda 6 body?
13.what are the different classes and what are their rules?
14.would a 6-3 turn brushless and lipo pack be against the rules to run in any class?
15.whats a good brand for brushless? im looking at the novak gtb/velocity combo.

1 - in electric touring, foams are generally for carpet, rubber is used for asphalt and sometimes carpet as well.

5 - cuz they get REALLY hot

6 - being geared too tall, other things as well.

11 - I dont own either of those cars, but they are very high end tourers and both very highly regarded. The AE would probably be easier to get parts for. There are huge threads here for both, check em out. There are lots of other options for touring cars that can be competitive, however, so check your LHS and see what they have and recommend...you dont HAVE to have a tc5 or xray to be competitive, neccesarily.

12 - I always wonder that too, but I think its because it is a proven winner, and that it conforms to the rules for the class...and it looks cool

i know i dont need a new car to win, but from what ive read "any avantage is a big one" so i would like to get the good one. if steve dunn still worked at the lhs i woldnt need the enternet but he is gone and the new managment are as good as a bunch of monkeis, but they are learning.
