We have the new Track Power LiPo saddle packs on order. As soon as we get them we will take pics.

I will take pics of my car with a Core 5000 Lipo shortly.

See videos in the above post. I'd say the car in the videos, as it sat, would have been a top 10 car in any class at that event. Everybody that test drove it said, "man, this thing is surprisingly fast".
The difference was $18.00 batteries verse $50.00 Batteries Unmatched Piranha 6-cell will eat anybody's big money 4-cell for lunch. That BMI car looks pretty neat also!

Double pink front and rear on carpet and asphalt so far. May run white rear on carpet next time to free it up a little.

For asphalt I run pinks front and rear, but I like a ton of steering. To get a little less steering try double pink or magenta fronts, and if that's still too much try purple fronts.

Next State race is at Superior Hobbies this weekend. Great opportunity to run it with other pan cars. You can always do a Marcos, race a couple of heats and then go home

Hello
This class seems to be making a comback in my area. I am really just curious how would this be cheaper then EP touring car? That seems to be what people are saying. Also what is the a body that is standered in these classes. Thanks.

I'm not totally convinced that it will be markedly cheaper. It will be easier to set up, as there will be way less knobs to turn.

If done correctly, there will be an entry-level class that is relatively inexpensive when compared to the TC's. I'm sure a $200 chassis with basic electronics, battery and motor would be a fun ride.

With the models coming out in the $300 range, they are still cheaper than the top-end TC's. There are also less parts to break
