sub c cells are a thing of the past in off road imo
there lighter,more power so you can run a nicer turn motor with better power curve,
they dont drop off in power over a race
they last longer
if you charge properly you will have no problems
and if you keep to a 2c pack you wont need to balance them.
for racing you dont need any more than that iv found.
and as for light weight i love it,the car is more to how i like it but if the weight rule is there all you need to do is add weight to your car and do setup for it.
and last the price of a pack is really good now,less than sub c cells
limn packs dont work as good as lipo imo and there not really being developed for rc yet
the lipos from orion made by kokam are made specific for rc use so thats why i use them.
i may be wrong but i have not seen limn packs made specific for rc use but i have not really looked yet coz im happy with lipos.
though iv seen these packs talked about here,i just dont feel safe with them.

get a hardshell lipo and you wont have to worry about punctures. lipo and
liMn seem to have the same performance so if both are hardshell it will come down to cell quality and price. i think current hardshell lipos are good enough and they seem to be a fairly new thing so there is no need to worry about getting the newest thing.
