Would you say they are super slow out of the box even with a 7cell 5000mah battery?

I'm going to pick one up today.

why buy 4 8cell batts. when u can find a cool electric vehicle that is (or with purchase of a BL system) able to take a 3cell Lipo (11.1v)! nitros beware, as dolf lundgren says "You will lose."

contrary to some rumors out there, a 8-cell pack does not increase your runtime over a comperable 6-cell pack. it just makes the truck faster because of the increased voltage from the extra cells.
