Doubt it, they have some packs that are ROAR approved, but none have been submitted to/approved by the BRCA yet and I don't think any have been submitted for 2014.

Shame as they are good packs and ideal for club use, some series do allow them as they are available for everyone to purchase.
Built it !
Raced it !
Wrecked it !

I think I have narrowed it down to Thunder Power, GM Vmax, or SMC.
Those are all quality lipos with a good reputation. You can also add Reedy to the list. Those would be the 4 brands on my list when shopping for BRCA legal lipos (if performance is more important than price).

SMC are probably the best value with performance the same as the others (have a feeling those 4 all get their cells from the same factory).

I've been very happy with my orca packs.

I'm getting my car ready for the 2014 BRCA outdoor championships and I need some Lipo advice. The car spec is as below and it will run in the modified SuperTouring class.
TC6.1 WC base with RSD and EXotek mods (floating horizontally placed servo, floating Lipo set up. DCJs. Ceramic bearings. TRF aeration dampers with HPI and RSD springs)
LRP Works Flow esc
LRP X20 4.0T with 13mm team rotor, alloy vented end cap and ceramic bearings.
Sanwa servo
Ko Propo radio gear
Sorex BRCA control tyres
LW protoform Mazda 6 body with MR33 wing

I have been using some Revtech formula X Lipo's for testing and club races. But they are not (as yet) BRCA legal. Any advice what other top end Lipo's I should consider e.g. The orion 8000mah set, LRP, GM??

Thanks again
It's worth waiting until after the lists comes out in January and then buy your cells for 2014
