Questions?? Lipo or 5 cell for mod??

Now that Lipos are to become legal for racing are we back to racing 6 cell in mod for Nmh? Or are we going to be slower than the guys running 5 cell as experience here has shown 5 cell is quicker than 6 cell at a quite a number of tracks? Do we now need new ESCs to limit the voltage of Lipos to the same as 5 cell so we can use the power of the low turn brushless motors to their best? All the guys running mod here in QLD run 5 cell and are quicker than they were with 6 cell. 5 cell seems to be a good balance of power and car handling. Any thoughts or suggestions??
