Well, just another reason ROAR needs to enforce LiPO's better. So that Manufactures can build the car properly around the battery. A 3mm tolerance is big when compared to the NiMH standards.

ROAR has LiPO Height: 25.1mm +0mm/-3.0mm

I think in reality the measurements need to be more strict and the same as NiMH. 23mm Max /21.5min. Excluding "Bumps" I have a few LiPO's and I enjoy using them, but I don't enojoy having to cut and chop on my car to fit a big capactiy pack in there. Why?, because the other racers have big capcity packs and in stock, voltage is king, and capacity keeps the voltage higher longer. One way to solve that problem would be to enoforce a more strict max height.

The other way to help stock racers is to Limit Capacity. I think a max 3200mah would be a good start for Stock and SuperStock classes.

I would assume if x-ray made a lipo spec car it would be quite a bit more then just raising the top deck. It would be purpose built around lipo and brushless and be more along the lines of the Team Magic E4 or Losi Type-R (or something we have never seen before).

They could bring back the shaft drive like the Tamiya Baja's had. The propeller shaft was above the battery. This would also keep the Diffs narrow, unlike the PRO4, JRXS, E4

Then maybe a slipper-erntial could be used to adjust the front to rear power-bias like on 1/8 buggies.

T2'009 would be reasonable...with ultra low center of gravity

I bet they just call it the T2 '009. Not sure what they will do once they get to 2010.

And Now the battery is placed 2 inches below the wheels...

Guys, this was a terrible idea!

I see a 4mm thick chassis with the Battery area milled out to only 1mm thick for LiPo's, and additional chassis space for weights to be added for the lighter weight batteries.

I see some much improved CVD designs comming.

I wonder if they will trade me for my design/idea...or I can shop the design around to Losi or Associated.
