No Clegg I don't waste or spend untold thousands on R/C components, what little I have to buy I research carefully before I spend.
Thank you for cleaning up your post we appreciate your corrections, yes we can all use colorful words but it is not necessary to use them, on a public forum. If you were on the forum that I monitor I would put your *** in time out for a month, but thats just me.

I race nitro sedan (the Kyosho FW-05RR) in the Summer. I race 1/12th(retired for the winter now - tired of tire and battery wars), and now 1/10th mod buggy offroad (a much more fun and easy going electric R/C for the winter). As to where I live... not that I need anymore people stalking my arse... but southern WI.

also thanks for being the spelling police, I would hate to see someone get injuired from web jargon getting into civilized and highly serious discussions about toy cars!
Are you telling me these CARS that I spend 1,000's on each year are JUST TOYS!! NO WAY!!
THIS IS MADDNESS!! 4300's this month 5300's by next fall. When are we going to make races longer so we can actually ues maybe a bit of these new batteries? Heck one 4300 should get me 10-12 min of run time.
Stop the Maddness, Get ROAR to make it illegal to charge packs between heats, and only allow one pack for two races. At least then it would be like when I started in this goofy hobby and making 5 minutes of run time was a hit and miss proposition, you actually had to gear the car so you would make time. Maybe we can make it illegal to run one pack for each heat, and change the rules as to not allow more than one pack per racer for the heats.

In my TCS Spec car I am able to get almost 100 laps at ~16 sec / lap on my old worn out 3300 packs, maybe the RC Rules makers should make the weights heavier and the races longer, at least then we might have an actual NEED for the insane batts that are now available. Heavier car rules would only make all those expensive CF parts not a factor, heck someone might just be able to be competitive with a box stock car, we wouldn't want that!

FWIW
I'm still going to go the LiPo route for my next batts that I will run on a regular basis. I , aside from the stick packs I am going to need for the TCS racing.

I think for modified it is always better to have more capacity and use the first part of the discharge curve.

I disagree. Then we'd need the insane batteries JUST to make runtime. I like it how it is right now. We don't HAVE to have the top-tier packs to make runtime or be competative. In stock/19t its possible to make runtime on 3300's

Yep, I think this is the battery war between Intellect and GP. I remember the wars between Sanyo and Panasonic and where are they now? They've left the stage! I also think that there will be in fall at least a 4800mah cell. Then there will be a new battery war coming: between LIPO's and NIMH's. Who can have the most mah's pushed in their cells. Time will tell guys. What will happen to the motors we use as we reached the single turn wind motor? Are we going to use thicker wires or are we use 17 wires for 1 turn on each pole. Are we going to beat the nitro guys in speed just like in boat racing where an electric boat holds the world speed record? Let's wait.

Well Hotwheels are race cars... on their lil loopy track thing... A race car is any car that races. and the kids section at walmart has lots of cars you can race.

Unfortunately, people seem to think that the more you spend the less of a "toy" something is.

"toy ( P ) Pronunciation Key (toi)
n.
An object for children to play with. - I dunno about you but I see lots of kids at the track
Something of little importance; a trifle. - yes... R/C is of little importance
An amusement; a pastime: thought of the business as a toy.
A small ornament; a bauble.
A diminutive thing or person.
"

so I guess its just the level a person chooses to see it as, if you just get an rc and play with it its a toy, and it probably does cost to much, if you see it as a race car, its a sport, and the cost isnt any more than any other sport........
