This class has a chance to be really exciting. But to bring a new car out that cant use the latest battery technology and the future technology for that matter just doesn't make sense. Sure, one can say "lipo saddle packs are/will be out" but that just doesn't cut it for most of us. I don't want to spend more money on a special battery for just one car.

The car's total weight is approx. 1220 gramms with Novak 3.5 and Novak low voltage lipo cutoff.
The weight is balanced apprx. 55% rear, 45% front.

G10 (fiberglass) is not a lot less expensive than Carbon Fiber so there is not much cost savings. G10 flexes a lot more than Carbon and is heavier. Setting changes tend to be muted by the chassis flex in a G10 car but as a result they can be easier to set up because getting stuff wrong won't mess a G10 car up as much. Its a double edged sword though. A G10 car is very hard to get that last tenth out of if you are really competative because fine changes get lost in chassis flex.

In my experience with three different Associated 10L's back in the 90's the fiberglass chassis had more flex which worked better on low grip tracks. Plus the cost was lower too...lol

Thats the next big change to occur in sedans. They will have to go to saddle lipo in order to get the best performance, balance and lighter weight.

This is why the BMI DB10R is designed to run 4 cell (Ideal), 7.4V or 3.7V saddle lipo (Ideal) and stick lipo (Less than Ideal). The problem with any stick Lipo pan car is that you will HAVE TO add weight to the side of the car opposite the speed control in order to balance the car.
