6s packs are way too heavy for the tc4 ! You might get away with 4s packs like the 4s tp3300 65c at 380grams !!! With a novak Hv4.5 geared high, you can get as much speed as you want !

I have my Hv4.5 tc4 weighing in at 1690grams with this tp3300 4S pack(380grams) , and I can tell you the jaco foams are struggling to handle the load !!! There are other 5000+mah 4S packs out there weighing over 550grams that would not help my car's handling issues at all, let alone 6S packs !

all 1/10th TC are made for 6 pack Nimh or 2s Lipo, do not understand why someone has to put bigger batteries, speedo and motor to go faster. (a 1/8th speedo is not necessarily faster anyway)

They are seriously fast enough as it is, try running a 60C pack with a 2.5t motor and you will know what I mean.

My Hv4.5 tc4 is a fun car , when I don't want to use my racing cars ! It is faster than any 4wd rc's out there, including 2.5t , and won't blow esc's left and right ! It's the torque that makes it fast : imagine a 70000+rpm(4800kv at 4S has even more rpms) motor geared at 5.4675fdr !!!! The bottom end on this car is nuts !!! I pass 8scales on the straight easily !!! It's just for fun.....

By the way, a tp3300 4s at 380grams is lighter than a six cell Nimh energ4600 (400+grams)........

People put bigger batteries, speedo & motor in a car to go faster for the same reason people climb Mt Everest. it's there & they want to see if it can be done.

That's a nice track, checked it out on YouTube. I didn't see a building close to the track is it in a park?

It's an old small closed airport !!! It is a fast track, and I got tired of my electric Mod car getting pulled by 8scale , so I built my Hv4.5 , and some Pro10 3.5t cars that put a stop to that for good !!!

my local track is GTBRC in Toulouse south of France and all the tracks in the league (Castelsarrasin, Castres, Tarbes) all in southern France.
Next year I will be racing French championship and cup too.
