Yeah, a 2s 3500kV lithium car should be pretty darn quick, I can't image a NiMH 5500kv with any gearing able to keep up. We run our "Super Stock" class as lithium 2s 3500kV with 54/13 or 54/14...

Good point, I forgot about the lighter weight of the lithiums. From previous measurements a set of lithiums is about 11gm lighter than the NiMH's, so that would be the weight difference between cars....

I ran two cars, a 5250kV...

We should be able to fit any of the HFAY layouts in our space. No huge preference on any of the tracks, so ok with anything that gets chosen.

Looks like everyone is converging on two classes, stock and open, allowing drivers to participate in both, and keeping CW and CCW directions. Sounds great to me.

Thanks for starting the discussion Brian.

A couple of thoughts:
