My cells have plenty of punch. I am going to experiment with a higher peak detect and possibly the temp probe, to see how many MaH the cells can take.
Ok , that will be good if you can try it , also , do you race mod because i will and i want to know if i will have enough runtime with a 3.5BL 5 cell pack ?

Spec Point batteries is a good company to deal with. I know the owner and have raced with him many times. I've also raced his pack before. The are always very strong and have excellent runtime. You should have no problem running 5 minutes with a 3.5 if you buy packs from him...

The cells should have plenty of capacity. The biggest thing to pay attention to is proper gearing, and driving style. If you are a little heavy on the trigger, you may see a falloff near the end of 5 mins.
I've raced these cells in 4wd offroad 6 cell mod with a 4.5 turn brushless motor (yes 4.5 turn). The damn thing was a rocket for 5 mins straight! I had plenty of capacity left. I went to repeak the cells for the next round and the cells only took about 800 to 900 seconds of charge to top off again.
