i make my own ferrite motors for drag racing only...

yes i only use sub c cells .. the 3/4th sub c cells are good for high cell counts like 20 cells but for 12 cells or less sub c cells are the way to go.. albie

man robk indoor drag racing... now thats too cool....

i agree 4 or 5 cell 50 or 80 mah cells are the norm we use in the cars..
as for a prostock motor if your running 8 cell prostock the motor is a neo can and if your running 6 cell progas \supergas that is with a ferrite can and the neo can is more money... albie
