This is my goal for 2017, to hit 160 mph on 6 cell and 170 mph on 8 cell! I've only tinkered a few times with 6 and managed to hit 144-146 but that was also with my 8 cell motor! I have hit 165 twice on 8 cell and 157 quite a few times now on 7 cell, I'm positive I'll hit 160 with 7cell but the goal is to do it with 6!

very cool!, I am not going for any records just want to know I am getting all I can out of 6s, and I want to stick with a buggy to do it.
I won't be moving from 6s at all. good luck man keep us posted!

Nice looking buggy, I would definitely recommend running an external cap pack, especially with the mm2/mmx

Thanks, man. It's actual an old hobby wing 150a.
Cap pack is stuck right behind it


never ran a castle ESC, I have an ezrun max 6 coming in the mail. Not running 8s but I want to have the headroom and stress it less.

Nice buggy man. I personally never had very good luck with Hobbywing ESCs. Pretty sure you will need to switch to a Castle ESC if you want to see any serious speeds. Good luck.

Thanks, I've had good luck with them so far. I went with it years back because it was 150a as opposed to the 120a of the castle. What's the limitation on the hw that would affect speed? The newer mmx up to the task? I was trying to find an XL2 recently.
