I did watch the 188 MPH video.
But, on the right hand column, there were many other videos.
One was 38 minutes long about four wheeling from last year.
Mud fest, red neck mud bogging, quads, trucks, you name it
I commented about alot of heffers in swim suits

You dont need that power on a gt car , 4s will get u plenty on track , my buddies run this on track , if you want more power slap 2 3s .

Thanks FloJo,

After much deliberation, I'm settling on two 3's as you suggested. Think I'll go with the SMC brandóread great things about them!

Ya, 8s is for speed runs only! 6s might be to much for most tracks depending on track size. I'd start with 4s. 5s and 6s will eat tires really quick!

What motor are you guys running to get over 100mph, or is it taboo to ask?

Hpi or castle 2200Kv will get you there. I used a hpi 2650kv on 6s last summer to hit 102 no problem except ran out of road and I get scared lol.

Like Jstall said there's a few excellent motors to choose from that will get you past 100 mph, you'll also need a proven hi-speed body to get the most from all of them.



Good luck & have fun!
