nah. a couple buddies ran those around here with tenshock 4000's and they weren't significantly slower than anything else. one guy did gear his too tall and puffed a couple batteries. so again, with this heavy of a truck good batteries are a must, but it can be done on 2S. you just won't be blowing anyone's doors off.

2S and 1/8th scale does work perfect

my RC8 to SC conevrsion does weight 6.7 lbs incl body and Lipo
The Castle 1410 1Y is playing with the car like nothing

Nobody needs 4S in an SC

I go outdoor Nitrohunting with this car

runtime is straight 15min on my indoor track

Maybe a castle 1415 because it has torque and still 550 sized
