Do you have a list to hand, which part number = which size ?

rcmarket said it would be a special edition to celebrate the 1-2-3 at the LRP TCM and come with titanium/aluminium screws and spool, so it's not really a new verision

Thats IF it happens. I contacted rcchamp about it and they didnt have any info, hopefully we get confirmation soon because I'll be buying my kit at the end of the month and I'll be pissed if the new edition comes out after I buy

Yes, only thunder power, i just want to share this site which I found, for anybody which is using LIPO on 416 to having better idea to try making similar 1, i know is difficult and complex.
Unfortunately it's not a commercial site, just private.

I use Trakpower and use double sided tape to hold pre cutout lead that fits the slots .. I then place weight on the offside to balance .. simple job done

The size of the holder makes me wonder if he's using a soft cased LiPo as well, as it's rather short compared to the hard cased packs.

Still nice handiwork

Yes it has built in voltage cutoff that you can enable or disable.

tq.

during lipe charging, is equalizing a must? what is lipo equalising? should the lipo be equalized together or separately during charging? i saw a picture. two wire of charging and three wire of equalizer connected together.

Equalising is done at the same time as charging so you connect everything up. Equalising is not a must for every single charge. But if you have a balancer you may as well equalise every charge. I have seen people never equalise their lipos and after a few months, you significant performance dropoff.

Is this a high bite track? I mean very very good traction? You could add some kick up if you are looking for some high speed steering or steering all around. A oneway would be nice if all the turns are fast and flowing. Spools can offer tons of steering too in the fast turns. Try the oneway first. Kit setup might help out. If tons and tons of traction, you can try Marc R's JMRCA setup with a few changes to the rear roll center.
