Doesn't matter at a the club lvl anyways. And most club don't care anyways the guys that are going to win will win with or with out "cheater motors". If you go to big race Events you might want to switch.

Regarding the 40 amp charge and discharge, isn't this procedure done to heat up the pack? Will a heated lipo bag do the same thing without the harsh mega-amp method?

That would be thicker wire.

It's only 8.42 volts..

It's only 193 mm wide..

It's only 0.5 mm low on ride height...

You see where I'm going with this.

The rules only apply until someone in a position of authority dictates that they don't.

I suspect all this about Trinity will boil down to them not paying a monthly kickback to someone or something, who knows.

Rather sorry state of affairs for toy car racing really, but that happens when we allow stagnation on these authoritative committees etc, term limits would go a long way to solve everything,
