    Did you unplug the temperature sensor? I seem to remember in another thread here someone from Traxxas said the stock receiver will limit forward throttle to 50% if the sensor is unplugged.

    I know everybody does it differently so I'm not looking for a specific formula. What I mean is, is it purely a mathematical calculation based on capacity and IR, or does it involve testing of the...

    Everyone that has switched to a castle or other brand ESC says it has way more punch than the stock esc. They feel the stock ESC had very aggressive punch control.

    Maxamps are very overpriced in my opinion. There are a lot of cheaper packs that are just as good or better, such as Traxxas or SPC.
