I'd say so. I run a 6900 Mamba with the throotle curve linear for 95% of trigger set to 70% of max, then the last 5% on throttle kicks in the last 30% of power.
This makes it controllable through the infield but still lets me unleash the top speed for the main straight. And thats only with 5000 Venom lipo.
