Casper,

Cause right now my best battery (note singular) is a 3300. Most of the stuff I have are 2400s. Some matched, most are not. I think lipo are the way to go, mainly cause of run time. I've considered getting the Nimh but For the amount of $$ i would spend for 4-5 good packs, I could get 1 or 2 lipo and run my cars all night.

What are you gearing your 4wd at? I looked at Kyosho, but this BJ4 WE was a great deal. Im running primarily on an indoor blue-groove clay track. We run Losi Pink tapers OR pather Komodo tires. I was told by another BJ4 racer who is using a Checkpoint 13t motor. He said its plenty of power for our track.


Mom- just waiting for the bank account to re-plenish itself. Also, any info on a clothing update? Im serious about the Banzai Onezee!

Fair enough on the lipo's I guess. The EP4200, 4500 packs have great runtime and last a while if you use them regularly. They can be charged multiple times a day as well. There are limited options for saddle pack lipos as well. They do not like being left for weeks on end without being charged but other then that they have been super reliable. I have been getting a good year out my packs. Lipo are good as well but have there issues as well. There are +/- to both.

As for gearing I gear 6-7 over the wind in my 4wd. 4wd usually have internal ratio's in the 2.5 range.

As for tires I think you ment Panther switches and not Komodo's?

So you like the Slingshots? How are they price wise? Im still on the fence about Lipo. I need to find SOMETHING that will work. I want something with good runtime. Esp. cause they do occasionally run a 7min main! I use the Triton charger.


Yes, Switches are the tires in question. I think the komodos are 1/8th scale.

I am partial to slingshot but if not them then I would stick with the EP cells. They have great pricing. As for 7 min mains, no problem. 4200's will easily go 10 min mains. New 4500's are just that much better.

Komodo is either a 10th scale truck tire or a 8th scale but I knew what you ment!

If you have more questions on batteries PM me.

It's getting close to bowl game time isn't it? I know the NC game is weeks away but the rest of the games are going to start soon right?

I'm going to have to go to Yahoo Sports and print

out the games so I don't miss any!

I need a flow chart for everything any more!!

MOMO Our order is already in for shirts, hats, and hoodies.

We also have some kids wear coming, the baby wear there

is a problem. The tiny things won't fit on the equipment,

so they are working on something a little different.

Scheduled to be done the 1st of the year.

Looks like it's just me and you Mitch.

On a more important note, the Chili Bowl Nationals will be televised live this year. One of these days I'll make it that one.

Go Esslinger.

The engine in the wagon is an Esslinger midget motor with a turbo. I don't care who wins the Chili Bowl, as long as it's an overhead cam motor.

Peterson is a good back, so was Barry. You'll have to excuse

JIM BROWN!!!!!! And yes, I saw him!

If you got yourself out here to California, I'm sure Fez

could help in the female department!!
LT is the best, and didn't he just pass Jim Brown on the all time TD list?
