That made me chuckle a little

I think you'll find the amount of speed/power adequate.

If you are running on loose dirt, traction will definately be your issue above anything else, even on 4S.

So I ended up picking up a Thunder Power 50c 5200mah battery...Things a hella expensive but says it puts out 260a of continuous power sooo should be worth it...Debating on picking up 1 more TP maybe a 45c but will wait till I get the car and check it all out.
