Oh yes lets see if we can get a full heat.

On a side note what are peoples views on running 17.5 and 7.4 volt lipo along side each other? They are meant to be evenly matched

Yes they are very evenly matched.
Paul and myself had a few drag races at Eastbourne where I was 17.5BL/7.4L with Paul using 10.5BL/ single cell lipo and there really is nothing in it.

The problem I found though was the extra grunt out of the corners causing rear end issues. Loads of powerslides if I was lucky, otherwise quickly finding the car facing the wrong way.
:D

Carpet grip though should all but cure that though.

I don't see a problem myself if it will broaden the appeal. The only issue is how current drivers feel about it as they possibly bought according to the specs at the time.

they are quite an accomodating bunch :D

From what we have seen so far is the 10.5/single cell cars are easier to drive consistantly and therefore have a slight advantage over the 17.5/7.4's.

ON tarmac I'd definately agree. If the 17.5 is significantly better on carpet it will be apparent as soon as it exits a tight corner.

I'm happy for you to run that set up, and it will also give an idea of how the F1's will run with that combination.
