    Cells un-match their voltage over time, so when one gets really out of play with the others, it goes bye bye :) .

    If I use voltage and amp readings, im sucking up 2.8Kw (130 amps * 21.6V)

    It's probably around 2Kw though. I use a 9XL motor.

    To clear the vague answer off diff upgrades, sensorless will need at least UE's 6-Spyders. The HV will be fine with an FLM diff kit and an alloy...

    I wasn't meaning along the lines of speed, I meant just how they work in general. When you buy an HV-Maxx, you got an army of people behind you for help. When you go XL, you got about 3 people on...

    When you are born, do you run or walk first?

    Think of the HV-Maxx as learning to walk, and the high end brushless systems as running as fast as you can.

    BP - it must be magical, 47? :p ;)

    Yeah, but if even if you only use 100% power for fraction of the track you still get that blast of acceleration (doesnt apply to HV's ;) ) that just puts a huge grin on your face!

    Its not overpriced as such, its just that people dont want to spend so much on their cars.

    Fully SM'ed Maxx with a G2 would destroy a revo though :) .

    Most likely your other half!

    He already has the truck, so if he buys a nitro, its gonna cost more than going brushless. Assuming he doesnt sell the E.

    Go B/L, you will never regret it.
