This is a copy of the original scaled down to 14" x 7 3/4" print. You can contact me @ [email protected] for additional information and payment.

Below is a picture of the actual size you will recieve without the frame.

Thank you

Default High Voltage electronics or not?

Did anyone happen to notice whether the racers were generally using high voltage servos with lipo?

Or were most racers sticking with LIFE/NIMH receiver batts (regular voltage servos?).

Just wondering what the professionals do.

Appreciate.

It was a mix but I was actually surprised at the number of top drivers using NiMH, I really expected there to be a majority LiFE. I have noticed that most of my sales are to 1/8 guys but I wonder if the current super light weight of the chassis is the reason why so many top drivers still run NiMH vs LiFE.

Tqs car was using lipos for sure ive got a pic with the chasis wo tank were you can see clearly the lipo the sanwa hv.servos and all the weights next to the gas servo and next to the receiver (he used receiver next to pipe)
Hara and fukuda used stock position on the receiver and in the final saw no glitch for the three of them

I have one question, why is that for every major race Salven seems to always have radio troubles? IS he using some ancient Futaba attack with some eveready batteries or?

Lightweight cars is one reason. With Life and LiPo you first gonna put weight where you want it, in the battery tray. In that case why not sticking to heavy batteries? Also LiPo is not the right choice (anymore), people have experienced what extra electronics and in this case switching regulators can do to a reliable working receiver.
And last thing with exploding LiPo batteries. More clubs are making rules that Lithium based batteries must be charged in a LiPo bag and with balancers to prevent the small chance of an exploding battery
