You need a different setup if you need 15 & 20 minute mains then. My track is one of the larger tracks around (home of ROAR nats for 09) and I can make a 15/20 minute main. The 4s/Castle setup is perfect for 10 minutes or less, but won't cut it for 15-20 minute mains.

Jump up to 5s and get a 1700kv Neu. A 5s 5000 zippy will get you 20 minutes all day long. I ran up to 24 minutes in a race with that setup. for 15 minute drop down to a 4000-4300 pack. I have NEVER dumped after a year of running this setup.
