I converted early as I was fed up of using voodo to make my cells work.

I initialy encounterd some resistance at my local club but after some discussion we now allow lipos and a lot of the club racers use them .

Good question, I'd say it'd worth taking with you.

I think the reason that 'they' dont allow online voting is that there is no room for discussion or for any one to be able to put their opinions across in that fashion.

Atleast at the AGM you are all able to stand up and say your peace, and then either get shot down in a ball of flames or be responsible for some amazing new rule that is voted in

I am suprised nobody has asked, and nobody in attendance has updated already but here goes:

The rule on Lipo got passed by the members for use at all sanctioned events from 1st April 2008. The rule in the handbook does not need to go into detail like the proposal did and all that was changed is any mention of cells, cell type etc has been removed, and the wording changed to "Car will be driven by a nominal voltage of no more than 7.4v".

The EB has been asked to compile a list of Lipo's, which is going to be done, but firstly they will take care of the spec - which will be done to match whatever Efra decide next week at their AGM. (The BRCA & Efra should have consistency on rules like this).

The Lipo list will be made available on www.brca.org as soon as possible, and will be kept live until the cutoff for Lipo submission. So any of us can view it before making a purchase and see what the current list shows. I highly recommend anybody wanting Lipo to wait for this, and use it.

Initially we think that no current saddle packs will be made legal due to their size. This is unfortunate, but the manufacturer may already be dealing with it - like I said, watch www.brca.org. This only means for regional/national, and anybody who has already got packs will still be able to use them at club level just as they are doing now.

Chris

what's the problem with their size? that rules out most 4wd chassis straight away then unless manufacturers can get new size cells out in the next few months?

going to be a lot of pissed off trakpower owners out there!
