Default Stock class run times?

Setting up a buggy for 17.5 stock. If I run no boost and little to no timing (this is for my five year old so speed is not needed at this point) do you think I can get three five minute qualifiers and a main out of one 5000mah 2S lipo?

more than likely yes. I am using just over 1000mah running a boosted 13.5 for 6 minutes heats.

Should be ok. I pull around 650mah running 17.5 boosted in my B4.1 in a 5 minute run.

You'll have plenty of run time with the 5000.

We ran our holloween enduro last night and went over 23 minutes on a 5600 and a 13.5 in my SC10. The race was 69 minutes long we made it with two stops.

13.5 and up use very little joice during 5 min quals.

You'll probably get 25+, minutes... and if he's a little guy, and likley wont be running the car REALLY hard... you could maybe get 35 or more. (considering some of that time he will be putting around, or maybe on his lid )
