Hey guys with most of us racing at this new track in foxboro, why dont we make a class with LIPO. I'd ike to see maybe the trucks. Brushless 21.5, LIPO batts (don't know the size), and a Truck body. Mabe even spec tires. With everyone having a tough times, this could be way to race cheep. Like to hear some feedback.

Rick if we go lipo we have to get new chargers and new battery and that is more money to spend Why can't we just run what we all ready have????

jim is right i think that that with this being a brand new place lets try and get guys racing right away with what they all ready have. plus we do not know just how big this track is and there is no lipo that compares to stock speeds. just my 2 cents

I agree...Also....I think we should wait to see what Lipo batteries are being allowed at other tracks in New England.....I think K/N is only allowing up to 3200's...not sure if Maximus is leaning towards 3200's or 5000....I say let the dust settle 1st.....this way
we will get a better idea...I dont want to buy 5000's then find out I have to buy 3200's to go to other tracks......

i am pretty sure that heath is putting off any lipo decisions until next year, working on keeping the tour going this year with his other races. let the dust clear on lipo

I think that LiPO is going to be a great thing. Having a battery that will last all night. Wow. Between brushless and LiPO it will take a lot of cost out of R/C. Also SPEC racing, like our Mod class was fun. I think that a Truck class similar would be great. I'd Like to take to Heath and Mike to see where there going to go. Then mabe after the holidays this might be a way to go. But as for now Lets RACE!!!
