You can now run your Brushless/ Li-Po truck at all the RC Pro Series races too. Its the 1/10 2wd truck class (nirto and electric) check it out http://nitrooffroad.rcprosites.com/s.../contentid/236 , scroll down to the vehicle rules (you can also run electric in the monster truck class too).

I prefer the 8000 gives plenty of run time with the 5.5., 6.5 motors on the larger tracks. I also like the weight of the 8000 packs. In the summer time diffently a fan on the ESC
I am real excited about the RC Pro Series move to add Electric Trucks to the Gas Truck and Production Monster Truck Classes this year. Some of us planning on race in the series now that would not have.

They're mains will be 30 minutes long that can be made with the right motor/battery combo. An 8000 mah li-po can easily make 30 minutes using a Novak 6.5 or higher brushless motor and Novak GTB ESC. I have went over 40 minutes with a Novak 7.5 motor.

The future looks very bright for Brushless and Li-pos!
