How many NiMH packs will you burn through keeping that voltage edge while the lowly LiPo consistently delivers its same voltage for hundreds of cycles, without fail? Yes, NiMH has more voltage in certain situations, and is probably faster in that sense. If that one thing is all that matters, stick with NiMH until they dry up.

LiPo will allow you get get your car to exactly the legal weight limit. Depending on your situation, especially with heavy brushless electronics, this may benefit you more than a little extra voltage if your car is heavy. You also have the option of shedding a few ounces if your club rules are flexible, and making up for any disadvantage you may perceive because of voltage.
