No way someone can tell you what's "fast enough"

But it will still be fast. If it's too much on 6 cells or too punchy, then 5 cells is a good idea... gear up a tooth and try that. It should be just about the same speed but less punch.

I have recently seen that work well on a b3. It was faster on the dirt track because it was lighter but the run time was less.

I think that it wouldnt work well on a T4 because of the weight and the larger wheels (rolling mass)

Just my .02

I've run 5 cells in my T4, but I kept all six cells in the truck to keep the handling and weight unchanged. And I'm running a Mamba5700 system that has too much power really on 6 cells anyway.

So it worked fine for my setup.
