Default Hooray mod

is now much cheaper, requires much less maintanance, allows you to have much much more track time, & you don't have to worry about who has what motor because you can already peal the tread off your tires. Hooray mod racing & long 20+ minute mains that will become relevant in future racing.

Well yes there is/ or will be less motor maitanance on the brushless motors. But think about the rest of your car. Mod is a very competitive class, and at the speeds they're running, only other parts of the car will wear faster. Drivetrain, ect. Plus the way manufatures are making their cars, they want them the lightest as they can get. Which means they might need to make parts a little more brittle.
Mod will be very popular soon, due to LiPo and brushless. But if its going to be cheaper, and less maitanance?

When I run a li//bl setup I lose about 250 grams. I'm sure that adding 250 grams to those arms would make the car a bit more durable right? Then, after running the same lipo//esc/bl motor for 2 years straight I guess It will be time to buy a new one. Untill then I'll gladly have a blast using my spare money on other hobbies such as life. Running down the back straight at 50mph is pretty fun. However, when you can do it thousands of times w/out any battery or motor work its pretty awsome. If your still doing work on motors, nuking nimh cells, & spending more time in the pits then on the track come next season then your either sponsored by a brush//nimh dist. or crazy not to invest into li//bl.

So guys, I had some spare time this afternoon. Well, I got in around 2 hours of track time during a 2.5 hour span. The other time was spent tweaking & changing out batteries. I like these new rules alot.
