If you want to compete with the nitro cars there is no way around 6s.
Using a 2250kv Motor with 6s will take it up to the rev limit. Also the iron losses will create extra heat at high revs, causing an additional problem.
2000 to 2100 is ideal for 6s.
YouŽll need 5000 mAh + for a runntime around 10 minutes. More is better, but gets to heavy.
I would use two small 6s packs (2650 mAh) and run them in parallel.
Example: Turnigy nano-tech 2650mAh 6S 35~70C Lipo Pack.
They are relatively cheap, and running them in parallel will give you the c-rate you need.
