This is NOT correct. A motor will not draw more or less current based on the amount of mAh output of the battery. The only thing higher mAh output does is allow A: longer run times an B: Will increase the packs overall amp draw capability.

Again, it WILL NOT change how many amps a motor draws.

As for using them in starter boxes I have been using a 4s 4000 mAh pack for 2 years now. I race every weekend April-October and only have to charge the pack abou twice a season. Of course this will vary for each person depending on how long it takes there car to fire up, get it lined up properly, and a myriad of other things.
