I was not full throttle on the straights every lap but only when going for a pass.

I am sure with a lower discharge rated battery I could have gone the entire 15 minutes no problem or maybe a smaller track also.

Hop that helps you out any.
The 1512 2d = Castle 2650 and 1515 1y = Castle 2200. Both motors pull about the same number of amps so the run times are very similar.
