    Yes and it also depends on what mah batteries you are running are they nicad etc...

    Basically on average a 3000mah+ will get you around 10-15min run on a stock motor

    wow i run 3300s some smc gp cells and 1 pack of sanyo 3300s
    i have brushless and i get about 45minutes+ out of a pack and i just toss em on the charger at 4 amps no special care.

    for good cheap 3300 stick packs buy the reedy black label packs. they are either unmatched gp3300s or matched sanyo 3300 cells

    Speaking of cheap batts... i need some "club" level Packs that can be pre assembled (im not good soldering packs and dont have a hot enough iron) where can i get some? I dont need anything big, just some nice GP3300's and 3000'S for Club track racing and practice. I accendntly shot 3 packs from not paying attention.
