Actually, the best time to buy lipos would be when your existing nimh packs start to lose punch and capacity. If you will invest in new packs, eh di yung forward looking na di ba. I estimate my packs to be uncompetitive by early 2008. By then, I hope to buy 2-3 lipo packs and hopefully, those would be enough for race days vs. 4-5 nimh packs. I also intend a gradual phase in so that expenses wouldn't be too abrupt. Gradual phase out of my nimh batts would also mean gradual selling of charger/discharger equipment and proceeds from these will contribute to the new equipment. I think all the new tech is good. I hope they deliver on their promises as well para mas masaya mag-RC kahit Lolo na ako! Yehey!!!

BDC : Yup I agree. Although siguro retain ko na lang yung charger ko since magagamit naman sya for size AA for camera's , TX cells etc.

Madaanan nga si lolo JoelT mamaya. heheheh. Wala na syang rason dapat. May Lipoly na si Mang.

Mukang mabubuhay ulit yung mga kit na crosswise ang battery mounting like TA03/TA04/T1 etc pag nauso na Lipoly.

bdc, if you will race in 1 class, you will only need 1 lipo batt kung 4800 ang kukunin mo, that's good for at least 2 heats (running 23 and 27T, not sure kung aabot sa 19T) without charging, pero mas matagal ang charging mo after the 2nd heat. kaya better if you will top off in between heats just 1 lipo battery for practice, qualy, and finals.



re. spec BL, alin ba ang susundin dito, 10.5 or 13.5? 10.5 = 19T and 13.5 = 27, right?

Josh... I was able to try the Novak 3.5 BL system when it was still in the design/testing phase.

Most modified brushless system in the market right now have way too much horsepower for regular mortals like us. To be able to take advantage of that power, yung setup ng kotse and mas-importante at siempre yung driving skills. Noong una, takot na takot akong magdrive ng mod brushless kasi hindi ko makontrol yung kotse sa sobrang tulin. Piga-hinto, piga-hinto... I think I make better lap times running a mild mod or 19t than a full blown brushless/lipo setup. Sarap lang gamitin pero over...

Jason... yung kopya ng DVD na kay Rnold nga (salamat Rnold!). Sabi naman sa iyo hindi porno yon eh at di ata kita nasulyapan in any of the footage. Sorry... rookie pa yung kamera man ko... either that or tinamad lang kumuha...

Marvi: Malapit na siguro kong subukan mag-lipo. (HIndi liposuction ha ) Like you said, one pack can actually be enough for a race day depending on heat intervals. Pero at most siguro 2 packs lang solb na. Add to that the convenience of charging ahead of time (as in days prior to a race) and race days may actually turn out to be more relaxing than tedious. Mas maka-focus sa thrash talk. Hehehe.

Lewd: Saan mo gagamitin lipo?

Rough: Lipos starting to get cheaper depending on source. 2 lipos might eventually cost as much as 3 nimh packs (not counting cost of battery bars, shrink wrap material, etc.) Besides, obsolete na naman yata current nimh packs ko kasi may GP4600 and another brand's 4500 eh.

On a side note, please see the thread about the 3200 lipoly packs at the Electric on-road forum. According to some users, there is no real voltage advantage for these vs. nimh. If such is the case, baka naman we can all agree to allow lipos to be used in all classes. It will be cheaper for us racers in the long run.... promise.
