if you want a lipo pack get the Protek 1300 or 2300 pack from nexusracing.net they both fit, its just a matter of how much you want to lower the tank....Just dont forget to get a regulator

guys at 301, what tires should i start out with for this track? also, is the 4mm chassis a good application here? i have never been to the track, so is it high bite/high traction? what about the Multi Flex engine mount?

Lipo 2s packs run at 7.4volts. The regular 5 cell packs run at 6.0 volts. Translation, you plug your lipo right into your RX with no voltage drop and you risk frying your servos and RX. So they make voltage regulators(similar to novaks BEC ) to drop the voltage down from 7.4 to 6v, also should include a lipo cut off(dont want to discharge the lipo to much).

-Cheers

I tried Lipo's, but went through 3 packs and 2 regulators, before I gave up and went back to a standard 5 cell 1600mAh pack.

The 4mm chassis definitely works better at 301 as it is always high bite and sometimes even super seriously stupid high bite.

For tires, either 40s/42s or 40s/45s (front/rear) work best. I'd recommend 40/42 to start.

Hey BadKarma imo you should learn the pretty much stock before you start changing too much. The first options should be gears, oils,springs and just the adjustable rear sway-bar and stick with ni-mah 1600 battery ofna pack.

I would stick with the wire swaybars, cheaper and don't get smashed when your enduro teammate smashes your car into the wall lol. But overall I like the idea, Springs are huge, Its easy to convert asc or losi oils to cst. But hard to get the right springs.. and Orion 1600 rx pack

Go with NIMH like the marathon 1600 from Orion, LiPo packs are good but the voltage cut off rate is too fast, in other words you won't really be able to read servo's slowing down when the battery is low, it will be more sudden. Don't worry about weight savings cause the car is really light out the box, and run's great. Like other people are saying run the car, learn it, and, if you feel like you want upgrades just worry about adjustability.
