Default Expected Run Time for Pan Car on Asphalt

Gents,
I'm just building up a 200mm Pan Car (Racing Classic Group C in Singapore), but just wondering what kind of run time can I expect? I'm rather new to Electric LiPo world (Historically been 1/8th GP Nitro, but have had a 20 years break until last year!). I know that it's dependent on a number of things, but rough order of magnitude would be appreciated. Spec is:

-6.5T Motor (REDS), REDS ESC, 2S Shorty 5000mAh Pack, Car is a Serpent S100.

-Track is outdoor and 1/8th sized, Asphalt, Ambients are 30DegC average.

Run time is my focus, looking for circa 15min (want to practice extended run time).

Thanks in advance, and looking forward to the build, first electric car in 20 years :-)

Kindest Regards,

The answer is "it depends".☺
Run time depends mainly on rollout and throttle input.
If you're on a large track with high traction level you will be able to empty the battery in 5 minutes, particularly if you run a rollout that is set to wring the last bit of speed from the car.

If you want to set up your car for long runtime, start with a conservative rollout and start with some shorter runs to figure out your battery consumption. Running blinky and minimal motor timing will also help.
Always be careful with long runs on lipo batteries. Don't go below 10% of the battery capacity or they'll get damaged.
