Depends a lot on what Kv motor you are using. Some use 6s and lower Kv, while I am happy with 4s and a higher Kv motor. There is always 5s, and then LiFe batteries too which are a little lower voltage.

If I might ask With what KV motor are you getting 9:30min.rt ??

With my 4400mah & Neu 2200kv motor I can get well over 20min. off road, I don't think I'll make 8min. onroad, it's time for new lipo's.

Default shock springs

Hi, I've converted my MP6. (Pics in post # 201) I find myself in need of shock springs. OD of the shock body is 14mm. ID of the springs I have is 16mm. I'm using front shocks on all four corners. Any ideas? The buggy springs I have are much to soft. Thanks, Don
