I'm not sure you can get the Novak to run for 20 minutes... but I would suggest a 4s 8000mah pack. Maxamps has them... not sure who all else does.

@6000mah might be enough, but 8000 would do it easy.

I also have my doubts about a novak making 20 minutes with out thermalling. As for the battery I would recommend truerc's 4s 8000mah packs. Performance is about the same as a maxamps back (even though they are have a C rating that is a lot lower) for less money.

I have a mayhem converted with a novak hv maxx with the 4.5 motor 5mm shaft, and i run a trinity lipro 4500, ihave only ran it twice so far about 10 minutes each time,with no drop in performance, esc-85 deg. motor-90deg. and lipo 100deg. and iam sure the pack would last at least another 5 min.
