    Depends... what are you running? As in, whats your car, gearing, motor, and battries?

    Yes and it also depends on what mah batteries you are running are they nicad etc...

    Basically on average a 3000mah+ will get you around 10-15min run on a stock motor

    I have a 1500 nicd also. Only runs for 3 mins right now, but once I start using it more, the runnging time will go up.

    wow i run 3300s some smc gp cells and 1 pack of sanyo 3300s
    i have brushless and i get about 45minutes+ out of a pack and i just toss em on the charger at 4 amps no special care.

    for good cheap 3300 stick packs buy the reedy black label packs. they are either unmatched gp3300s or matched sanyo 3300 cells

    Speaking of cheap batts... i need some "club" level Packs that can be pre assembled (im not good soldering packs and dont have a hot enough iron) where can i get some? I dont need anything big, just some nice GP3300's and 3000'S for Club track racing and practice. I accendntly shot 3 packs from not paying attention.
