Default Battery life - belt vs shaft?

I've got a t2 009 I just put together, and trying to figure out why the battery life is so amazing! Using the same batteries on my Slash, I'll get 20-40 minutes, depening on trigger control. With the t2, I only ran through 1600mAh in a whole hour! Is the batt life due to the belt?

My buddy is going to get a car for drifting, and want't to know if the belt give the incredible batt life, or is it just that drifting is a low load activity?

Xray t2 009

Gearing and weight also play a factor in runtime.
