I have recently decided to get back into the hobby, and man alot has changed and im feeling a bit overwhelmed with the drastic changes in tech. I have 5 pan cars 2 complete lol the rest sum what close or pretty close to being complete.
I really dont wana buy another car as I think mine would do well still, but what im after is to see what most seem to be running in their cars. Im hearing all about LiPo batts chargers, balancer's, etc.
As well has hearing that brushless is the new trend. I also have older speed controls (fresh out at the time) one of my cars (my fav) runs a novak duster II sport, would like to run the new batts but hav no idea of how many cells, etc.
Dont wana go frying things, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

What class are you looking at? That will determine what ESC/Motor/Battery you would buy.

Brushless and Lipo is the ticket though. Almost zero maintenance and insane run times. Worth every penny.

well im not that great a driver lol so a stock/ novice classd would werk for me, back in the day all we did was oval race, and thats all thats close to me, I visited a new track today that was a road course and man that was intimidating... I found a duratrax lipo 7.4 3700 mah for 80. good deal ?
alot of the guys today were running TC4s and 5s I believe with brushless esc's and motors, and could I use this pack with my novak ?
