6s packs are way too heavy for the tc4 ! You might get away with 4s packs like the 4s tp3300 65c at 380grams !!! With a novak Hv4.5 geared high, you can get as much speed as you want !

I have my Hv4.5 tc4 weighing in at 1690grams with this tp3300 4S pack(380grams) , and I can tell you the jaco foams are struggling to handle the load !!! There are other 5000+mah 4S packs out there weighing over 550grams that would not help my car's handling issues at all, let alone 6S packs !

all 1/10th TC are made for 6 pack Nimh or 2s Lipo, do not understand why someone has to put bigger batteries, speedo and motor to go faster. (a 1/8th speedo is not necessarily faster anyway)

They are seriously fast enough as it is, try running a 60C pack with a 2.5t motor and you will know what I mean.

My Hv4.5 tc4 is a fun car , when I don't want to use my racing cars ! It is faster than any 4wd rc's out there, including 2.5t , and won't blow esc's left and right ! It's the torque that makes it fast : imagine a 70000+rpm(4800kv at 4S has even more rpms) motor geared at 5.4675fdr !!!! The bottom end on this car is nuts !!! I pass 8scales on the straight easily !!! It's just for fun.....

By the way, a tp3300 4s at 380grams is lighter than a six cell Nimh energ4600 (400+grams)........

People put bigger batteries, speedo & motor in a car to go faster for the same reason people climb Mt Everest. it's there & they want to see if it can be done.

That's a nice track, checked it out on YouTube. I didn't see a building close to the track is it in a park?

It's an old small closed airport !!! It is a fast track, and I got tired of my electric Mod car getting pulled by 8scale , so I built my Hv4.5 , and some Pro10 3.5t cars that put a stop to that for good !!!
