Will it work? yes... will it provide the strongest and longest lasting punch throughout a race? no.

I will be trying a 4200 40c shorty pack in a 17.5 TC5, on a HUGE track. I know that a 21.5 set up will use about 1800mah, during a 6 min. race, so the 4200 should be fine with the 17.5.

As far as making time, 2500-3000 would be enough.

Want to go fast, 30,000 would be better

I use a 6000mah 75c speedzone in my 17.5 blinky. After a 6 min run I usually only put back 1500-1800 mah when i charge it.
