Default 100MPH Serpent 966e

Guys, I'm having difficulty getting my 966e into the 100MPH range. Is there something that I'm doing wrong? I'm using MMM 2650kv 4s Lipo and the gearing is stock. Any advice would be helpful guys

more voltage
a mate has a serpent he converted some time back neu 1415 1y (2200kv) on 6s
to get the same rpm with a 2650 you would need 5s

Thanks guys for your help and I would love to run it on 6s, but they can't fit inside the car. How do you mod the chas so it will run off 6s? 5s won't even fit in there, so I used 2 SP to create 4s

First I must admit that I've not had the honor of purchasing this car yet, but judging from the company web site, it states a 2800kv and higher motor as well as two 2S 4800 packs so I'm sure you could get two 3S 3000kv packs in there? So if you don't want to go with a higher kv motor, then get the smaller but higher voltage packs. Also, are you doing this for track racing or high speed runs?

Not sure on this particular car, but looking at it on the website, it looks like one bad machine!! i kinda want one...

Some more info would be needed on the gear ratios in the car to findout what would be needed to attain 100mph..

Im damn close to 100mph in my SC8E with a 2200 kv motor, 6s battery, and 23/44 gearing

How close too 100mph are you right now on 4s?

Also, id be careful with the suggestion of smaller MAH batteries, these will have a lowered ability to provide sufficient amperage, makes the possibility of puffing, or blowing a lipo much easier.

Two years ago that may have been true, but now with packs at 50C and higher, you most definately will have enough "push" (aka amp) to exceed the needs of your power system. For example, a GOOD 3K pack at 50C maxes at 150amp (or 120A if you use the 80% rule) which would be 3600 watts/4.9 HP (using 24V) whereas a 50C 4S 4800mah pack would max at 240amp which would be 3552 watts/4.8 HP (at 14.8V). Now remember most ESC's can't sustain 240A as well as the extreme heat difference of 240A vs 150A.
So, a 6S 3000mah pack vs 4S 4800mah pack
6S 3000mah 4S 4800mah
50C 150A vs 240A
HP 4.9 vs 4.8
Del V 24v vs 14.8v
rev. 2600kv 62,400 vs 38480
Temp Hot vs Inferno

Now that example uses MAX numbers and does not account for losses in effeciency ect....
Also, you've got to remember that you'd actually be pushing a lot less amperage per cell as you go up in the number of packs (unless you make the mistake of not gearing appropriately).

Thanks guys for your help, but I want to do speed runs. I have no clue how fast it is now, but I would guess upper 80's.

abailey21, I thought 80's because when I was at the track with the gas 966 my 966e was dead even on the straight. I thought those cars were in the 80MPH range
