Sounds like you just cant get enough power .. but then you do still hit stuff ..hehe J/K .. Id really like to run that set up .. But what class?? expert 19t ... sedans should always be 6 cells .I dont think 4 would do the job... be too slow ..

Have you ever hooked up a low-turn mod motor and a 4 cell pack in your sedan? Was it slow?

Adrian's idea was indeed for 4 cells to drop weight/cost, but then low turn mods to bring speeds back up to normal stock or 19t levels.

Adrian posted that a 4-cell mod setup would be about .2 sec slower per lap. The only problem I see with his philosophy is that the batteries will cost less, but having a super fast motor will cost more than it does now. We wouldn't lose much traction under acceleration, so having a really fast motor would be more beneficial in this new class of touring.
