I run a 6s 1400-1700 kv setup on the track and it's awesome. My 2650 lipos are 475g. Much lighter than a four cell setup. I would agree that six cells on more than 1800kv is not a suitable track...

Also for a given motor going up in voltage will increase temps regardless of gearing from my experience. You will just plain make more power. The only way to offset this that I know of is to go down...

Battery placement opinions

Would like to hear some other opinions from the fellow monster members on battery placement in e-buggies. I know that the norm is forward placement but the nitro based buggy layout has the heavier...

Based on batteries the 5200 should run longer. Amp hours are amp hours no matter what I think the main difference is the motors and tall gearing. I would think the 1518 would draw a fair amount...
