[QUOTE=ghost rider;3772748]Just asking for some opinions on switching from 6 to 5 cells.
I am currently running 6 cells but i am hesitant to start running 5 because i might lose some speed.
We are swithing to 5 cells at the start of next year but was wondering if i should change earlier to get up to speed.
Is 5 cells slower or do i just put my 3.5 in instead of my 4.5,i have heard you also gear up 2 pinions on your normal 4.5 gearing.
Any opinions would be appreciated.
5 vs 6 depends on track and driver. Geared properly 5 cell isnt slow, but you lose punch. Yes, we gear up around 2 pinions.
5 cells and 3.5 is really fast and still easy to drive if there is traction, but depending on track size and battery you might have trouble making the runtime.
