Ya, because we are talking battery amps. Quick off the line acceleration doesn't need high battery amps. Just once the spinning gets really fast do the battery amps go up. People who I have spoken to say they have a hard time getting up to 300 battery amps (in the DC controller case). Sure the motor amps are pinned at 500, but not battery amps. Now these aren't drag racers, but people driving around town and on the freeway.
