Default Expected Run Time for Pan Car on Asphalt

Gents,
I'm just building up a 200mm Pan Car (Racing Classic Group C in Singapore), but just wondering what kind of run time can I expect? I'm rather new to Electric LiPo world (Historically been 1/8th GP Nitro, but have had a 20 years break until last year!). I know that it's dependent on a number of things, but rough order of magnitude would be appreciated. Spec is:

-6.5T Motor (REDS), REDS ESC, 2S Shorty 5000mAh Pack, Car is a Serpent S100.

-Track is outdoor and 1/8th sized, Asphalt, Ambients are 30DegC average.

Run time is my focus, looking for circa 15min (want to practice extended run time).

Thanks in advance, and looking forward to the build, first electric car in 20 years :-)

Kindest Regards,

The answer is "it depends".☺
Run time depends mainly on rollout and throttle input.
If you're on a large track with high traction level you will be able to empty the battery in 5 minutes, particularly if you run a rollout that is set to wring the last bit of speed from the car.

If you want to set up your car for long runtime, start with a conservative rollout and start with some shorter runs to figure out your battery consumption. Running blinky and minimal motor timing will also help.
Always be careful with long runs on lipo batteries. Don't go below 10% of the battery capacity or they'll get damaged.

Associated R5 style as almost every one uses in some sort of variation.
Even Tobias from VIP uses the lower part of it

The second round of the Catalonia Pro10 Championship was held at the Rubí track this past weekend. In the Modified class Marc Valero took the overall TQ and he would also walk away with the day’s win after some very close A-mains. Jaime Lacuesta would take the runner-up spot at round two with Sergio Lacuesta coming in 3rd.



1- Marc Valero
2- Jaime Lacuesta
3- Sergio Lacuesta

What kind of Lipos are you running?

Standard? Saddle? Square? Shorty? Double 1s shorty? What configuration has your preference? and why?

I started out with dual 1s in my BMI but now prefer the lighter weight of the shorty pack. It's installed transverse all the way back. I have had a couple of blow overs so I might want to try a square pack sometime or move the shorty more forward.

I run an associated and the speed merchant was recommended to me .
Speed Merchant sells the front end as a kit.

Running 2x 1S batteries on the JKMR P235 SE and brink lipo's on the V-link Proto type.
The V-link can also be easily converted to shorty by exchanging the topdeck and battery holders.
Why?
Better weight distribution on the SE with the 2x 1S and the V-link proto type is also my rain car so when converted to shorty you got perfect room to put a water tight receiver box just behind the steering servo.

Regards Roy
