Well, you've got the right idea but the numbers don't add up. If my TC is using 2250 mAh in 6 minutes with a 17.5
(avg. of 375 mAh / minute), the Slash (3x as heavy) is using 1500 mAh in 5 minutes (avg. of 300 mAh / minute) with a 13.5
(or 2600 mAh in 10 minutes, an avg. of 260 mAh /minute). Since this was posted in the Electric On-Road forum, I think that the TC numbers are a more accurate representation of what he can expect.
And I still recommend increasing his budget to get a 5000 mAh pack.
