asphalt- LW bulkheads ( for additional flex and grip )

carpet/lipo- kit bulkheads ( so you dont to so much stick on weight stuck on )

carpet/conventional cells- LW bulheads ( because the cars a bit on the tubby side )

Goetz is gonna get me for this!

The one Adam has is a newer proto. The one on Chris' car is the original. Adams is even lighter and will meet the new weight specs for next season with almost no weight over the min. I am waiting for a few sheets of the new materal to arrive from Cass Polymers to do another run of like 100. I will get you one to try and see if you like it. These will be final units. You have seen the way Chris has crashed at times and his is in almost perfect condition and has never adjusted by itself. It not only holds the battery and makes the whole thing adjustable it really protects the battery even more. So just say the word and I will get one of th enew ones to you to try. Everyone that has tried it has been very ositive about it. There have been 2 changes since Adam got his, 1 more positive left to right adjustment and 2 a access to get to the motor mount bolts.

only for the mispelling.

justin's dead on. our car's a tubby bitch. but with lipo, that changes everything. imagine how much lead a tc5 is going to need jammed all over the car with a lipo! our car should still be attractive in this situation because it was so heavy to begin with.

i fought all year to stay at 50oz with ni-mh for foam tires. now, with the gbs bodies being 0.030" and brushless taking over, there's no possible way this is going to happen with the carpet chassis.

so, what i'm saying is, go with lipo, and save the additional spending for traveling to the series, rathing than on exotic ways to lighten the car.

Not this Sunday. Last weekends issues left me with too much to do this weekend. But I will be there on the next race. I may have time to swing by Minnreg on Saturday since it is only a few miles from my home. In any event I will see you.

I think that Adam is putting the holder in his oval car, not positive but I think so.
