Default Batteries for tx

Can I use larger mAh sized "aa" batteries in my tx? I know this sounds dumb, but I figure More mAh longer tx times. My local track just went to 8 min. heats and alkalines are going to cost to much, need to switch. thinking of going to radio shacks 1000 mAm "AA" batteries. Will these work? Thanks for any repies.

Yeah, NIMH tx batts are the best way to go. Just make sure you charge them at 1.0-1.5 amps max and you should be fine. I have an R-1 and that thing uses up a lot of power, but I can go two to three days of racing before I charge them and they still aren't dead when I do charge them, just don't like waiting for the tx to beep at me.
