Thanks for the answer, on the systems you are using. The main reason for using higher voltage is to cut amp load and in effect increace runtime. My plan is to run a 1200kv motor and 5s 2500mah lipo, the lipo is about the same weight as a 2s 5000 lipo, but the amp load is significantly reduced because of the torque being built out of voltage over amperage. My main concern was for the 4th gear and if there was a problem with durability, if you have no problems, i should be fine.

once again, thanks
