Castle 1800kv motor in my buggy - along with 4S 5000 Lipo and Mamba Monster Max. Pretty nice setup. Lower KV gives you more battery choices and should run somewhat cooler than 2250KV and up.

Go for 30C cells for racing - or higher, if possible. They're not much more $. I'm running 30C 5000 Zippy Flightmax 4S and they're very capable for 1/8 scale racing. (just wish I could get out and...

Series for the OP is that they have 2 2S lipos and want to make 1 4S lipo out of it. For 14.4v rather than 7.2v which you would have if you wired in parallel.

I run a Castle 1800kv with 4S but it's real nice on 3S for slightly tamer results and indeed could run 2S but would only do it on a small indoor layout.

Mag-lev - like the Wipeout video game.

Magnetic Levitation would add one more dimension to on-road tuning. And - no tire wear!

Fantastic combo is Castle 1800kv and 4S (ROAR limit is 4S). 2200 is fine too but maybe a little too harsh for buggy due to torque and a little longer/heavier motor - but a lot of guys use them. I...

Make marshalls ignore you.

I've kept up with Modified 4wd Slashes using my 2wd stock Blitz by not crashing - and they were a handful for the marshalls.

4S + 2650 is crazy fast plus a real Amp-puller.

For racing, really consider the 1800 Castle motor instead. Great for buggies with 4S. Which is why Castle put out the motor after the initial...

I have a wattmeter on my shopping list for later this year. Definitely would love to see what kind of wattage you're pulling during acceleration - that would help to compute the amps. I don't know...

That's a hot motor - like 1000 watts. With a 2-cell LiPO it may be sucking a lot of amps through the esc off the lower-volt battery. Say the motor is running at its wattage rating of 1000 watts and...

What's the wattage rating of your the motor? If it's a longer motor with maybe a 1200 watt design, it still could pull near or over the 80A of the ESC.

20C 5000mAh = 100A
4S = 100A x 14.8 = 1480...

I'd have to go HPI Baja 1/5 scale buggy. That has to be the ultimate basher and uses gasoline and not higher-cost nitro fuel.

The 2650 puts a hurtin' on 3S Lipos. How's your motor heat and ESC? Also, in summer, ambient temps outside can help heat things up more than usual.

A summer tip is to lower your pinion by 1T or...

After about 12-13 races with mine - I broke one ball cup on the rear suspension. Bulletproof otherwise. Blitz is a great design, good plastics and handles well.
