    It comes brushless, so I would say you could expect around 30 to35 mph with 7 cell nihm.

    aparently 40mph with included battery, i think geared for high speed runs on road. stock gearing is probably 35mph.
    rtr slash 4x4
    2s lipo
    some other rc stuff

    I think it's funny how the 4x4 is rated Skill 2 for nimh 40+mph. But when you move over a column, the Lipo 40+ column (2s) is skill level 4!

    I think it's because Lipos just have so much punch, that the car feels a lot quicker and accelerates a lot faster, even though top speed may be about the same.

    I thought they were including a 3000mah batt? The chart says it takes a 4000mah to reach those speeds.

    Speed should be about the same 3000mah vs 4000mah battery run time will be less.

    Which one? 60? 30 Dollars if you have a LiPo charger already.
    Some like R/C's that are fast, others like nitro

    what is the highest gearing that could be done on an offrad track? stock, or a little higher. I know 35+ is plenty fast, but don't want to be changing out gears between street runs and track runs.

    The faster the vehicle the easier it is to lose control and have all types of collateral damage

    bro, you should gear different from high end street runs and racing on the track...
    its all apart of this hobby
    If you don't want to change out gears? then run it stock..
