That's because they have an insane power to weight ratio. Low turn motor and nearly no weight other than the batteries and motor itself.

With the new cells the car is more the limiting factor than the motor/batteries. Weight is a big issue but the new cells deliver so much power (voltage and current) that 4 cell is pretty fast.

6 cell would be faster on the straight but probably not on the infield because of the weight.

Are you talking about 4 cell mod or stock?
