"Faster than stock" is some form of reference, but if doing CS10/12 the reference you need is 4S versus 'aftermarket' 6S. Because the setup is almost surely going to use much better 6S motors - like the 4S will too. Not 'mediocore' stock 6S motors.
eg HET, Leopard, CyclonePower (Inrunner) as the main 6S CS10/12 options.

So that comparison of 4S to stock is likely to be unfair... as the 4S setup would have been better motors etc.
Use a better motor setup in the stock fans (HET etc) and I expect that will outrun the 4S result. Mainly as 6S is more efficient, plus can be driven out to much higher powers than 4S ever could - if chosen to do so, motor KV etc.
And as per my weight calcs (vaguely mentioned earlier) 4S will not be lighter than 6S of the exact same power.
