It has to be 3S? I'm having a blast with my Moray, but it's running on 4S 1600 mAh. Does 90+ mph on stock setup and I'm sure you can push it a lot harder if you upgrade the electrics. For me it's...

There are differing opinions on whether 1/4-scale counts as giant scale, but I'm about to start converting my 3DHS 72" Extra from 36cc gas to a 12s LiPo system. It should be pretty epic. :)
