A lot depends on the track and your throttle finger too.. but yes 5000-5400 range is not likely for any setup to make a full 10minutes on a decent size track. Even my 1410 would hit LVC around 9 minutes w/ a 5400mAH pack. I've been using the IP 6200's and the carbon 6500 with out issue.. the carbon holds voltage better though, more rear longer in the race than any of my other packs. I was going to try a crc pack as they are rated top notch and cheaper than the carbons, but I need to stop spending money.. LOL

PS if anyone wants a new chassis to mess around with or as a replacement I have one on ebay for a good price ;P

I run a3800 kv 4 pole motor and have noticed the higher the C rating the cooler the motor runs. I have a 60c and a 150c max amps. battery with a16 th pinion and reach temps, between 140 and 150 after a ten minute main. every time i run a 40c geens temps go to 170 -180 and i cant make a ten minute main. I have also ran a 15 th. pinion and temps drop about 5 to 10 degrees. temps stay about the same on any size track.

What I noticed first was that the car pulled a little to the right (or left? can't remember exactly) under accelaration and spun out to the right under breaking. Upon closer inspection, the only thing I could find wrong was that the right outdrive of the rear diff was wobbly. Could this be my problem? I took the diff out and confirmed that I had rebuilt it correctly and that all parts/shims/washers/seals were in place. Is the metal holder that the outdrive fits into worn out? Is there something else in addition to this that might be causing my problem?
Anyone take a shot at answer this for me? Thanks fellas!

Thanks for the tips, guys. I'll definitely have to get a higher capacity pack. Probably from CRC.

I'm surprised you guys are having trouble making time with the 1410. My track is just stupidly large with elevation changes and big 1/8 scale jumps. The average sportsman type guys are making up to and over a minute a lap. My best times are around 50 seconds flat but we run ten minute mains and it is very very hot here. So far I have yet to put in more than about 4000 mAh into my 6000 mAh battery after a main and no hint of hitting the lvc.

Maybe I'm lucky but it just hasn't been a problem so far. The time I thought it would be was when we had a deluge the night before and the track was muddy and sticky, but I still made time without a problem. I don't take warm up laps prior to the mains just to be sure, but knock on wood, I haven't had an issue so far.

Just seems to me that something is causing drag or your gearing is wrong or something. I run 16/40 on that track, going down to 14/40 on tighter tracks that are still pretty big and set up for 1/8 scales. I do have a bit of timing on my hobbywing ESC because I decided to just run it at the default timing which IIRC is around nine or thirteen degrees or something like that. Is that the difference? I don't know but something just seems wrong here.
