No Lipo warming??? I guess ill be running Nimh.

Why does everyone keep coming up with new way to keep these off the track?

I have done many test back to back mainly for motor tests. Without warming the lipo The NiMh has a huge advantage, because its warm.

I agree. It's endorsed by many cell manufacturers as completely harmless. It's lame it came out 3 weeks before the race after many of us already geared up.

well EA since you don't have any use for your fantom dyno flywheel as we are using brushless I have a feeling you'll figure out another way to test Jamie's tech ability....
