Novak said that officially, the answer is no, but they know racers who have been doing this for some time with no issues. So, that's pretty cool. Just don't expect warranty coverage.
I'd rather have warranty coverage

Default LIPO's FOR MINI

Yeah racing 3200 and 4000(which is actually a 3600) These come with a Tamiya plug but a deans plug is included. Orion 3200 also fits the mini with no modification if you have a newer mini, which has two holes on the battery retainer. The Orion has corally connectors.

BTW

I agree with foxy923 regarding the warranty with Novak system and also if you decide to run the speedie in a Touring car you will have issues.

Later

Calvin

The Orion 2400 also fits and for the same price as 2 of the old 2400NiCds it's a great way to play on a budget.

Tony,

Great article on the Rides. I am still using the old pattern rides, however I think they are great on asphelt and concrete.

I will have to get some of the new ones and try them out.

Thank you

Calvin.

Default Lipo and Ride tires

I am about to get a m03. The ride tires listed here, where could I get them in the US? Also the Core 3250 Lipo fits the m03 as well.

Well, I bit the bullet, made up my mind, and bought a Novak XRS. I hope it works out.
