Thumbs up

It really depends on what chassis you're running and the gearing of
your motor. Power to weight ratio plays a big role on your set-up.
Like on my modified T2' 007, I can get 8-10 mins. on the 3200 Lipo
and 16-18 mins. on the 4800 Lipo depending on my throttle.
Hope this helps!

With a T2 '007 and a Novak 13.5, a 5 minute on-road race on carpet uses about 2100 mAh of my Orion 3600.

The best part about LiPo, just throw it back on the charger immediately after each race. LiPos do *not* tolerate over-discharging.

And what motor you're running for having 16-18 mins on the 4800 Lipo and what gearing?
