Re: More cells and milder motors...

I am looking at this from a logistical standpoint. Going to more cells and milder motors requires batter matcher to buy new equipment as Turbo Matchers can only take Sub-C cells. Sub-C technology is leaps and bounds more advanced in high current applications than in other cell sizes. Running more smaller cells would be more expensive. We also have the precedent of off road switching from 7 cell to 6 cell. If more cells were better, off road would still be running 7 cells and 17 turn mods.

4 cells give you better control, lower costs, no new equipment required (all chargers and dischargers have 4 cells modes) and better motor/tire life.

Before you knock it you have to try it
