I think your 5-cell idea would work... i bought a mini-z racing magazine in Hong Kong and one of their articles was a 5cell conversion of a mini-z... the text was in chinese though so i'm having a friend of mine who knows chinese to translate it for me... i'll let you know if the wiring in the HK article is the same as yours... maybe we can squeeze more power for our minis but that would leave little room for the ESC booster or transponders...
Waitaminit! Right 60? i thought you said Left 60? Great!!! we just ended up in the middle of the Paris-Dakar!!!

evenif u put a diode and circuit so it only worked with the 5th cell in forward.. it would still be more voltage overall though the mini-z board... not good. must change common parts to get the 5th cell or more...

What if you added components between the motor and negative on the PCB to bring the voltage back down before the current returned to the PCB?
I Am. Deal with it.
