    4 cell max, according to Castle.

    Also, no need to buy a MMP. The stock funny car ESC can be fully flashed to MMP firmware.

    The motor will handle 5s, with firmware updates the esc can do 6s. I have 2 of the early green motors and they state 5s rite on the can. I also have 2 of the later blue ones and the say Traxxas on the can and et-2400 on the endbell. On 5s it will be wise to replace the armature with the 5mm unit, or wait till it does cause problems then replace it with the 5mm piece. A 5mm pinion with an adapter helps a lot because of the larger set screw and a drop of blue loc-tite.
    Moddin your esc will void any warranty and I don't know on the motor that says Traxxas on it. The CC engineers told me the 4s limit is for the intended purpose of the system, which is a short course truck. He flat out said, the esc and motor will handle 5s just fine, the SCT wont or not for very long. I have to say he is rite because in my slash4x4 lcg 3s is mean, 4s is crazy and 5s means I fix the next weakest link.

    i see a lot of things about a slash on here but I'm trying to figure out how to run 4S on a funny car. i tried the above links in reprogramming the software but no luck is there any updates on this.

    Are you saying you re-flashed the ESC and 4s still won't work? I'm confused.
