Default some questions

i'm getting a rtr tc3
with some 2500 batteries how much run time can i get out of one?
after one battery is finished can i just pop in anonther one and continue running the car?
i would hate to spend like 300 on the car and the batterys and charger if the car can only be run for 5 minutes and then have to cool down for another 30 min

Probably 7 minutes with a stock motor. You should eventually get a 27 turn stock motor

You can let it cool for 10 minutes on a fan and run again

At 5 amps it will take a 2500 battery 1/2 hour to charge, A good charger should charge at 5 amps

27t Stock Motors consume less battery. And speed isn't everything. Gearing will make up for that.

yeah the gearing will make up for the speed....seeing as stock motors have a fair bit of torque...

even my mission s1 is faster with a sport tuned motor by tamiya, than my mates 16t motor in his TL01....,

^ What he said

RTR motors are never good. My Monster could smoke your RTR TC3's 19t

okay so with a new non-stock motor and the right gearing even if its ahigher turn motor i can still go faster, basicly its all about the right gearing
