How long is a set of tyres going to last? maybe one meeting...
I've been on the same set of tire's for a month. RP 36's

The 4.5 has 9000 rpm per volt but doesn't have a watts rating. The 3.5 at 490 watts is 10,500 rpm per volt. I plotted the other Novaks and got a nice curve and I estimated about 437 watts for the 4.5.

It's so fast it tears up the plastic diffs on my Tc3 in less than 1 run. And it's too fast even for our nice sized 112x76 asphalt track. I have relegated the brushless for my stadium truck on big offroad tracks where it's got room to spool up.

Can't wait until we get LIPOs and brushless so good we can run a 1/8 monster truck competitively with Nitro ... at the rate we're going, I'll guess we might see that within 3 more years ....

Consider, you need to make 1000W of power from 7.2v you will need 139A, accounting for effeciency though (lets say about 60%, after all peak power isnt going to be peak efficiency). At 60% efficiency you would need 194A. And then if you factor in the voltage drop the cells will expirence at 194A, I've got no clue what that would be, but lets say its 1.0v for the whole pack you would then need 225A. Seems a bit high to me...
I never said 7.2volt 6-cell pack... Thats where lipos come in, you can run say a 4s2p setup and at 65amps and 6000 or 8000 mah per pack it adds up to 130 amps and 12000 or 16000 mah for the setup and then you have your 4600 motor.... Insane uncontrollable speeds. Just like owning an Veyron.

I would love to see a dyno print out that says that your motor is producing that much power, off 4 cells...
