    Ok guys help me out here. Im getting my son a used Losi XXX-S to run around in the school parking lot. I have always run Nitro trucks so I dont know squat about electrics. Not interested in milking every ounce of speed out of it but I would like to know how to maximize run times. I emailed Losi and they said 5 minutes or less with a 1800 stick pack...there has got to be a way to get more besides going to more us out guys, thanks.

    yea u need to go for more or a higher turn motor. I bought a new matched 3300 for 45 bucks and with it in my rs4 MT which is 4WD and has a 13 turn motor in it I am getting over 10 mins of runtime. Other wise step up into a less powered motor which wont draw so much power.
