Well, I got to see one of the best features of this pack in action.

I hadn't raced for over two weeks. I hadn't charged the pack in all that time. So I figured I top it off just incase it had started draining. Put it on my charger, started charging and in all that time, the pack only lost 88mah!

Sits for 2 1/2 weeks without being charged, and only looses 88mah! I love this pack.

Does anyone know how long would a pack of li-po last with the novak GTB brushless with 4.5 motor?

I don't know where he got his, but you can find very high quality digital scales right on the wall at your local post office, and the price isn't bad either.

Or you can just go into yahoo or google and put in 'where to buy digital scales?' or something like that, and you'll find some places you can order from.

Well there are many side effects to Lipo

-Having more fun with your car for longer
-Not having anything to do for long stretches in the pits(this time was previously taken up buy discharging and equalizing packs)
-Other racers hanging around you pit, asking lots of questions then saying something similar to "I have to get me one of those"



Seriously though, what do you mean by "side effects"? To what? People the car? Give us some more info on what you mean.

Will there be any problems to the brushed motor if it is being run at a racing pace for 15minutes continuously? For example, would there be problem of over heating, burning up the brush, etc etc?

Anyone show me what the voltage regulator look like? for lypo

*There is no need for voltage regulator for R/C car use. Normal packs are 7.2, these are 7.4, heck even some of todays IB's are comming up with 1.23v per cell or 7.38 total. The gap between lipo, and NiMah by this time next year will be very close in capacity and voltage. But no matter what, lipo will still be over 4 1/2 oz's lighter and with no maintenance, and a unbelievable discharge curve nothing but another type of lithium will be able to compete.
