Cool Lipo for mini?

I don't understand why Fred didn't allow Lipo's for the Mini class. The Orion 3200 fit great! I used one the other day and it worked fine. No adjustments made and ran against another mini and his motor was much faster using the 3300 Orion Nimh battery. Why Fred? Why?

I was confused over the rationale too. Sometimes, if Fred explained his logic up front, then it would have actually made sense to everybody. There is a method to his madness.

I whined to Fred why there was no Lipo allowed for GT1.
Here's his response:

"For GT-1. Let brushless in and see what happens."

"For GT-2. Let both brushless and Lipo in and Really see what happens."

"For GT-3. Let Lipo in and see what happens."

I think this is a great experiment. Fred isn't picking sides on technology and we are the guinnea pigs.

Just hope that Japan will allow Li-Po for the Tamiya World Cup, then most of the other countries will try to follow suit.

Very very very doubtful.
The Tamiya world cup goal is to put on a show for the public and make things as fair as possible for the racers. They are not there to showcase technology.

The TRF "GT Victory" class and the GT1 "GT3700" class used unmatched Tamiya GP3700 stick packs.

The GT2 "GT2400" class and the mini class used Tamiya unmatched stickpack NICADS!!!!!!

Not exactly state of the art.
