    Lipos

    Well as everyone says lipos is like night and day vs nimh. Well i just got 4 brand new 2200 2s lipos and currently had 2 1200 nimh. So i put 1 lipo in to use a time chart to compare. 2-1200 nimh vs 1 - 2200 lipo. No comparison the lipo which was 200 mah less total lasted 5 min longer and had more way more bite so i put 2 lipos in paralell and i alsmost got bored before it stopped at about 45 min laterrunning stock gears stock tires and brushed motor. Thanks everyone that told me to get lipos 45 min all 4 charged and ready to roll i use my nimh to clean off the merv with water now and thats it.

    With brushless and LiPos, everything is better. Your food tastes better, the girls are prettier, there's peace in the Middle East, etc.
    Make it idiot-proof and along comes a better idiot

    I also think that a brushless Motor will Show the difference more significant. ;-)

    Haha I know man. That's why he would never get bored! Lol but seriously hardly a good idea with brushless. But just have fun that's all that matters!
