You should just be lucky I was able to put EA Motorsports in the position to be able to say I choked! Eat it!

I cut mine at 4 Volts. Bring it with you to BTH and I'll set it up for you.

Another thing that works well is to take one of those ultrabird motors (if you have one) and turn it to 0 degrees timing. That's what I'm using and it runs very smooth, low amp draw.
