8.2v? What kind of motor do you have in there now? If none, then yes it will go much faster...

Your 19T should be faster then your stock motor. Not sure on the extra cell. A lot of people are going in the opposite direction (5 cell).

TF-5 is built for a 6-cell pack or less. Not sure you'll fit an 8.4V pack in.

we can cut a bit off to get it to fit in, are the cars faster with the 8.4v battery packs?

More voltage but also more weight. Check out some of the 5 vs 6 cell threads to get an understanding of what an extra cell can and cant do. I assume this is just for bashing?
