    Question Stock 7-Cell 3000mAh NiMh (8.4 volts) Battery pack

    Can someone tell me what the run times are with the included 7-Cell 3000mAh NiMh (8.4 volts) battery pack that comes with the new Stampede 4x4. I just got one of these trucks for my son and I'm not sure what to expect. Thanks!

    Lots of variables effect run time, things like driver style, terrain, gearing, etc. I would guesstimate 12-15 min in a Pede 4x4.

    Keep that 11t pinion on there too... that system will draw hard on the battery and cause it to get very hot if you over gear it. Just leave the 11t on there and youll be fine.

    I got about 15-20 minutes on the 3 runs I made before I wrecked bad.

    Thanks for the replies. The truck will mostly be ran in the yard and street if that helps. I baught an extra 3000mAh Traxxas battery pack so I'm not sure if I should return it for a 4200 mAh pack. Thanks again!

    With the 11T and stock battery I get about 12-14 min, 10 of that is pretty good bashing and a lot of full throttle. Interestingly with the LVC issue I get about the same with the 5200mah 2s Lipo as well.
