    on 2s you should run around 40-45mph on 3s it puts you around 60-65mph on stock tires. Here is a link to a handy conversion chart. http://scriptasylum.com/rc_speed/top_speed.html

    I went with the 4600kv because you can more easily handle 3s battery's. On 2s it will do 36mph with 29/50 gearing. On 3s I get to 54mph when there's lots of room. It wants to wheelie so easly on 3s...

    I got my 3s battery's and this thing screams now. Put the GPS on it with 29/50 gears and it hit 54. Now I can use my 2s's for bashing and the 3s's for crashing.

    My charger does both at same time. So after 15 minutes my 2s 2250's are finished and balanced. My old charger would continue to balance after it was done filling it up. In fact it would bring the...

    I charge my 2s 2250 battery's in about 15 minutes. That's plugged into the wall at 90watts. That's at 4c or around 9amps.

    Let me also add. My charger limit is 20amps. But depending on the battery voltage I can't get to that 20amps because of the wattage limits of the charger. Because my charger is AC/DC charger I have...

    There is so much more that could be said about chargers that never seem to come up. But before I say anything, if you don't understand what your battery's can charge at, never exceed a 1C charge...

    However the 4600 will allow more voltage before you redline the motor. I'm not sure at what rpm is to many but you can put 4s to the 4600kv for 68,000 rpm. The 5700kv motor on 4s gets you 84,000....

    Well I guess it was the solder?? I redid it and gained 2mph. I hit 35.6mph. Which falls in line with what the chart says I should be getting. Also noticed it had more torque. It was wheeling at...

    You make an interesting point. I soldered on the traxxas end and it seems to be a good solder but who knows. How could I check something like that?

    That makes more since to me than weight. But I thought I purchased some high end battery's? Or is it just the price that's high end? I know there are cheaper options out there but I've used these...

    I was gonna take a shot at this but I'll tell you what I do know. If you multiply the volts times the motor kv you get rpm. So 2s or 7.4volts times 4600kv motor gives you 34,040 motor rpm. 7.4 X...

    I'm running Max Amps 100c 2250mah battery's in parallel. I think Jimmie Neutron nailed it with the added weight of the motor. I just ordered a set of Max Amps 3s 1850's. Those should do what I want....

    Plugged in the numbers and it spit out 37. Which that number would be more in line with the added weight. So back to my question. Would 3s on current motor or a 5700kv motor give me more bang? Thanks...

    True but that's a big hit in speed for the little bit of extra weight. Any thoughts on what differance the 5700kv would have made? Or a better question would be would I see a better improvement...
