The funny part was he didnt think it was faster till he looked at the lap times.I know he has been working very hard at getting his Losi faster then Billys Xray(which is usually dialed). But I thought he was running stock????
Kansas- I probably will be back some time this fall. Playing with real cars for now.Must go 10s.We were going to do a Lipo/brushless class.Any more news on that.I am really looking forward to racing 1/8scale buggy next year thou. The Xray is just too sweet. And outside onroad just isnt the same anymore. If anyone can afford a Lipo and charger I would recommend trying it. NO its not legal at a Roar race but it could be used for practicing. Just make sure you not discharge the pack to far.They can be ruined that way also.

I was under the impression that there was some distributive circuitry built into the LiPo packs to avoid this current divider situation.
I'm not sure but, I think LiPolys have the matching problem too. I don't have much knowledge about them though.

CraigH, do you think he didn't know he was going faster because the LiPo's enabled his car to handle better without making him have to "over drive" to go fast?

My LiPo made my Zagi awesome. It's about 1/2 as heavy as the regular NiCd battery that came with my flying wing. I'm going to try it in my car any day now.
