    Please heip!

    I bought a team associated t4.1 2wd with a 3300kv reedy brushless motor. I am using a 6 cell 5000mah nimh battery pack. I am only getting 10 minutes of run time before the battery falls flat. Is this normal, and would i get better run time out of a 2 cell lipo pack? What pack would you recommend? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    That is normal. NiMH batteries are old technology. Get Gens Ace LiPo batteries and a charger from HobbyPartz and you'll be very happy!

    Yes, NiMh suck!! NiMh use regular D cell batteries. Lipos last way longer and have more power.

    That seems a bit odd? My B4 had a Turnigy with a 4200 mah nimh... I got 45 mins. 25mins full throttle. Maybe it was because of the size? It's a 370 with a 540 can?

    That doesn't seem possible at all. Are you positive you got 45 minutes out of 4200 mAh? It shouldn't even last 25 at full throttle.
