doesn't matter unless you can drive a clean race and actually tune the car to go fast. if the car is not right you are just wasting money.

Hey butterball, F-1 isn`t asking the answer you are telling him, he is asking what is the BEST LIPO for tc now? Do you understand what he is saying? or do i have to spell it out in english.

sure you can use a 3200mah 20C against a 5000mah 40C in mod class and win...

+1 smc and TP would be the way to go these days.

I ve been using IP 5000 30C and Tune Up RC 5000 30C in mod class...its has been good so far....though I think the IP has a little bit more rip and power down the straight....i'll try some SMCs soon...hope its really worth the steep price.

Im using ip 30c's and they are fine in mod. I tried a smc 5200 40c, and i went slower. It was way to much power, the car would just wheelspin out of every corner. I wouldnt even try the 50c Btw i was using a sp4.0. You MAY be able to use a 4.5 with 40c but it will be very hard to drive.

Ip lipos are great, id recommend them to anyone. And the price is much better than smc and TP

Just my 2c

Thunder power 5000 40c is the fastest I have tried followed by the Intellect 5000 40c even when compared to SMC
