Both Mark and Tom's cars are M05 conversions. Don't remember what parts were needed, but it wasn't too much.

Hey, I got a question. What batteries were some of the f1 guys running in their f104's at harbor hobbies. They lipos were small enough that you could mount all your electronics inside the battery area too. I was thinking on getting one now that I saw that idea.( no more radio trays)everything right in the center.

Duratrax and Protek sell the 1800 30c hardcase packs. They are for the Mini Revo, so that will bring them up on google. There are other sellers too.

Don't charge them much over 2A....just sayin

Roar has a maximum charge rate of one C in their regulations/rules. If you charge them over 1.8 amps you could be booted from a roar event.

Just sayin...

No F1 specific rules are defined, so the general rules apply.

16. parts b & d state that Lipo's must be hardcase, so this is met.

16. part c breaks down as:
TCS legal LIPO batteries must be 7.4 volts 2S-1P/2P specification, so this is met.
TCS legal LIPO batteries may not exceed 6000 MAh capacity, so this is met.

You may use the ROAR approved LIPO list found here as a guide and reference to the 7.4 Volt 2S-1P batteries that will be permitted for TCS: http://www.roarracing.com/approvals/lipobattery.php
The above suggests the ROAR list as a guide, but does not make it mandatory.

Based on the above, I dont see why they would not be allowed to be used.

Another note, the side wings still need to be on the car for TCS events. I believe Marty brought this one up last year.

This is good to know,but didn't Tamiya just release a heavier rear battery brace as an option for added weight in order to get the rear traction to increase?IMHO,I'd rather go with a liter battery and add the weight where I see fit.I bought a battery of this size at RCX 2200 mh and 40c for $13.00 only it wasn't in a hard case.I'll try it in our UF1 series.
