yeah I would say we definately have different definitions. I might race at one of the most competitive club tracks in the country (5 A mainers in TC in the last 2 ROAR nats) and I didn't know many, if any, who did that at that level much less the casual racer level.

On the brushless side they all do have 3 or 4 different brushless motors they use and play with.

well your just crazy!
no not really, but that is part of the "fun" for some people!
I am just talking local club racing,
six silver cans cost $60 I have enough for the next 3 years kinda racing.
I'm also saying a great many of the newer races like the Vintage Trans-Am Racing are saying stock, silver can. and almost reluctantly saying ok, lipo and brushless cause we have too...

bottom line here is the day Tamiya (and everyone else) release ALL their kits with a cheap brushless motor and an ESC that has a built in lipo cutout the entry level will remain silver can + NiMh stick packs.

it is VERY easy for a young kid (and adults too) to get a lipo in a kit car, charge it up and drive it till it damages itself or worse gets dangerous. I bet every person has seen a lipo noob almost fully discharge a pack on their first use becuase they just didn't know.

our club gets around 80-90 racers every week, 2/3 of racers are in silver can classes or mini. i would say 90% of those racers want their silver can powered car to go faster!
