Then tried it again on a newer NanoTech 4S 5000mah 35-70C from another model and initial peak was approx 935Watts @ 62Amps which settled around 900Watts @60Amps.
I don't think going to 5S would be a good idea as I'm sure it will drive the motor way too hard so I might just get a couple of new 4S high C rating batteries maybe 3300mah and stick to 4S.
That 20-30 Watts that is lost at WOT with the old batteries, do you think it will make much of a difference to performance?
Im kinda new at this but....
900/14.8=X/18.5 X=1125 watts @ 5S
Now the question is, will your motor/esc handle that?
But then I may be off base too
