Default Need to upgrade to 4s (Basher)

I'm currently running a TRF415.. with Novak 3.5, flightpower 2s. 38P & 105 Spur

I bash in front of a stadium and pretty much go full throttle all the time. Question is... what systems are out there that can handle 4s?
i'm planning to get the mamba max 4600, disable the built in BEC. Install my own BEC and put 4s of lipo into it!!
What do u guys think?

Actually the 4600 is rated up to 3S lipo and so is the Mamba Max. However I know you can get away with disabling the BEC and running 4S with the ESC, because I have done it myself. I wouldn't be very confident that the motor will hold up.... that's like 68,000 RPM. Go with the 3S 5700 or if you want 4S get a lower kv motor.

nice one... i think i go 4s mamba esc and Team Tekin's Redline 537 sensorless motor rated for 3,700. So it works out to be nearlly 55,000rpms... PERFECT!!! =]
Thanks for the input guys!!!
