LOL... Lipo Sack? Really?

Hope someone has one I can borrow... I have no use for them personally.
Perhaps they'll let you can bring a metal lock box for the day as a substitute? :D I personally don't use a sack myself (although I have one I cart the packs in). I figure if the thing is going to swell I wanna know about it before I open up the bag and flame shoots out at me! :lol:

I would rather see the guys running the round cells have to use them... those things get ugly when they go off.

Ehh well, If I don't have one it will save me 6 hour trip I wasn't really interested in taking anyway... lol
I agree with you totally about 4/6 cell NiMH and NICD batteries, but wasn't my decision....

Man I'm ready to get back on the track. I keep looking at my cars every day trying to figure out something else I can do to them. You can only check the screws for tightness so many times! :lol:

Kevin A.........your avatar. Those the "spec" pancars Tim is going to be coming out with? I'll have to check his site to see if they're on there yet. I might have to make another purchase. :D

You guys looking for cars... I have 2 R5's ready to go... 1 has less than 100 laps of practice on it (never raced) and the other just came out of the box and was finished up last night.. I also have a pro3 roller as well, all come with 9650 servos.

Yea, seems like a fledging business lately... People either don't like building them, or want someone to build and setup a car for them because they think someone else can do it better. Most of the time newer racers don't have the patience to build a car properly... Whatever the reason is, it has actually kept me really busy since I started offering to do it last year. I have 4 sitting on the bench right now I have to finish up this week and send out...

Can't wait to get a look at them. As with everything it seems Tim touches, I'm sure they'll be fast. :) Gotta rib him about his website too. Under Team Drivers - Tim Dipenti - owner/driver?. Got a kick out of that. :lol:
