HobbyWing EZRUN Brushless System Combo B5 w/ 60A ESC and 8.5T@4000KV 3650-Size Brushless Motor for 1/12,1/10 off-road racing for experienced drivers.

Has he run it on a 2s lipo yet? 4000kv with 3s is going to be A LOT of rpm.

the LHS told me that the motor would be killer with a 3s lipo,

but if you would recommend a 2s lipo, could you tell the specs of that ?

What car is it going in?

You'll want a 4000-5000mah 30c regardless of it's 2s or 3s.
