Run time is dependant on your batteries, impossible to tell without knowing that.

Everything else can be answered if you click on the 'Mini for Dummies' link in my signature...

Leave it at 20T pinion. There is no advantage going to a 19 or 18T pinion.

Good batteries. Check the sivercan thread for motor knowledge. Beware tho, some of it is plain idiotic.

If you've got bump steer, then your suspension is probably setup wrong.

A properly set-up Mini will only have 3-4 mm of travel max, and the amount of bump steer over that distance is minimal..

Default How good

How good is Minis, i have had it for a while and just raced at the 07 Sydney Masters. One good battery pack for the whole day, charged a few times but, dusted down between races and nothing else, also raced T2 in 27T stock and luckily the Mini did not need work as i was too busy with the T2charging new cells for every race, cleaning and truing the motor, setting the suspension etc etc etc, the Mini, nil, zero, zilch, and had a LOT more fun and got second to HI.
Tony, when is the next big Mini race, i have got the bug....or should that be a Fiat

You gotta love the low maintenance of a Mini. The only things I check regularly are the CVA shocks (they probably need reoiling very 4 club rounds), one of the screws in a top arm on the front suspension, tyres and the front unis. Otherwise it just hammers on, and nothing breaks.
