    Run time?

    Hello,
    Does anyone know the run time when running the xmaxx on two 6700mAh batteries. Or the run time on two 5000mAh batteries?
    Thanks in advance

    I think you're going to get a lot of "how long is a piece of string" type answers, because much like a rear car, the length of time the "fuel" lasts depends on how you drive it. If you go flat out the whole time then you might be looking at 15 - 20 minutes, but in reality you don't tend to pin the throttle wide open the whole time without stopping, so you might get 30 - 40 minutes.

    +1.


    Cold weather also reduces run time as well. Gearing plays a factor as well.

    I guess you could lessen the issue of cold by keeping your batteries indoors and charging them just before you go out, then keeping them in a coat pocket or something whilst you're out, to use your body heat to keep them warm. Once in the car using them should keep them warm.

    I have some 3S 10,000 mah SMC’s that I don’t think I ever hit LVC with them. Well over 45 minutes of bashing about in grass.

    I have 4700 mah 4S batts and get over 30 minutes before they shut down.

    I have a pretty much stock X-Maxx, with the dual 6700 Traxxas batteries. I get anywhere from 50min to 90min depending on how hard I am bashing. I noticed the snow we have had here recently in Texas not only lowered the run time but also the performance (punch) I was getting, so temps for sure play in too.

    I could see less run time if I was just going all out continuously.
