Novak GTB Spread Spectrum (Regular vs 4 cell)

I am looking at the new GTB Spread Spectrum ESC for my T4 (I run a 5800 for now but will upgrade to the 6.5) but have a decision to make. What is the difference between the "4 cell" and the other one (with the fan on top.) There is not much info on the Novak web sight.

You'll want the regular one. The 4 cell is only for running 4 cell - 4.8V packs which I doubt you'll ever want to do.

Novak is pleased to present a new ESC in the GTB line: The GTB 4-Cell Programmable Racing Brushless/Brush ESC. The new GTB ESC offers all the same high-tech features and performance as the original #1710 GTB, but is geared specifically for 4-cell applications such as 1/12–scale on-road, and 1/12 or 1/10-scale pan car oval. It includes six throttle profiles specifically designed for 4-cell racing. Profiles 1-5 for are for brushless applications with revised software for even smoother starts and finer drag brake control, while profile 6 is for brushed.

I run mostly in the dirt and we have an oval track but we run 1/10 scale 6 cell (some pan cars included). I saw where it said

but because I am not familliar with 4-cell racing I didn't understand what a 4-cell application would be. Thanks to Nemix and Kuzo for the explanation.
