A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Mike, which 1/18 pack are you running? I'm looking to get the exotek chassis kit for the F104 and would like to experiment with different battery setups.

I'm not Mike, but I have made 8 minute runs with the A Main Hobbies/Protek 1800 pack and the Duratrax 1800. I think they are probably the same FWIW

Both - For medium and high grip asphalt. I am thinking offroad foam might work well.
