    Really really amazing build!
    How does is drive compared to single 8s or 12s?

    I'm a bit of a simpleton here, but why a double set up and not a single 12 or 16(!)s?

    This is so cool. Great job I can not wait for a video, or a top speed.
    With great brushless comes great responsibility.

    It has twin 16S MGM controllers. So far these have been trouble free. Got tired of burning up all that Castle stuff. The car weighs between 21 and 22 pounds right now. As far as speed goes, I am very confident in saying that it has been over 150 mph. I have just purchased a timing system to verify speeds better and I'm looking for a new place to test as my old one is no longer usable. I use two motors because I wanted to use high KV motors for their rpm capability. By having 2, the load is reduced, which increases speed. Basically, with this set up I have stupid amounts of power to pull really tall gearing, yet a ton of rpm capability. And, the motors are cheap.

    That's insane.
    Isn't the world record like 171mph?
    Looks like you're working on a serious contender.

    I looked around and I think 161.76 mph is still the record, I think you can beat that.

    Yep. Middle of the state.

    I have no intentions of breaking the world speed record. That's just not a realistic goal for a stock wheelbase production based car. That's the realm of streamliners and such.
