With a 2400, you could wick up a 12 and make it. As soon as we got 3000s while running 6cell, we could run 9 or 10 turns, way to fast. That's when the rest of us went to 4 cells. It sure wasn't as fast then as it is now, and definately less power than 6-cell. Evidence of this can be found in the Snowbird's results. 6-cell is always faster.

Also, isn't stock and 19t 4-cell quite a bit slower than 6-cell? Noticably IMO.

Frank, here @ RCSM in Phx. 6-cell stock 2 years ago was running 51-52 laps now 4-cell/19t 57 laps, 4-cell/10.5 58 laps and 4-cell stock is 48 laps now so 3 laps off 6-cell stock speed.
@ the Birds this year I think there was 1/2 laps difference in 4-cell to 6-cell mod in 4 min.

I know offroad/TC speeds are different than oval but that doesn't mean we can't run different motors to slow them down.

Are you talking about 19t 4 cell being slower than 19t 6 cell?

If so - of course it's SLOWER, it's powered by 33% less energy.

Nobody in OVAL is really running 6 cell 19t that I know of (at least out west),and actually 19t in OVAL died w/ the ILLEGAL 19t motors last year, and pretty much moved to 10.5 Brushless.

A 6 cell 19t would run about as fast as the best 4 cell MODIFIED times I'd bet..much like the 10.5's do when running them on the 3200 LIPO packs. THEY ARE ALMOST INSANE.
