If you like your car get good lipo's.

Since this is the Nitro section, anyone ever seen or known a Nitro to catch fire/explode?

Kokam for example is high end and when they do catch fire (extremly rare) they self-extinguish.

LOL Self extinguishing pack lithium is self oxidizing and therefor there is really NO way to put it out....sand is the ONLY option to contain the flames

Kokam is outta Korea...Nothing i didn't know already.

It happened at a big race, the people there all said the same, pack burned and stopped seconds later.
A racecar is only as good as the mechanic who build it.
