I use both NiMh and LiPo... I must say that I like the LiPo for the ease of maintenance for mod 4wd especially when running more than one class a night...

A good quality NiMh still has more voltage, thus more punch.. but is about twice the weight as a LiPo.. so they are pretty even.. only problem is that the LiPo is way too light in my opinon for stock buggy racing... very hard to get the car to settle down especially on a rough track or one that has lots of jumps... they do feel a bit punchy but that is just the weight difference..

Guess it all depends on the quality of the NiMh packs people use.. just because they cost alot doesnt mean they last or you maintain them well.. so a $100 NiMh after a few months of use isn't necessarily going to be better than a $40 pack of the same age..
