Man, thats a boatload of wishful thinking!

Even today, there are still manufacturers out there designing their brand new cars without the use of Lipos in mind. So how long will it take for them to design cars specifically FOR Lipo use.

Change is slow, very s......l.......o........w.........

Yeah, no kidding man...

And all they have to do is move the area where the LiPo would rest, further up to make room, slap the motor in, route the wires underneat the top deck to the electronics side, then add weights accordingly, and even have a more balanced car this way, with weight more evenly distributed from front to back on the car!

How? putting the 2 heaviest parts on the same side wont help at all.

I say saddle lipo or sideways stick, center motor.

Belt can go to the side like a Magic E4 or losi type-R sorta thing.
