    15 min. run time on new stock Traxxas batt.?

    Traxxas sent me a new batt. after the original one turned out to have a bad cell. I've charged it maybe twice at the suggested 3amp setting and only seem to get about 15min of run time off it? Don't remember the old one having such a short run time? Is there a break in period for these, meaning that maybe I'll get more out of it the more times I charge it?

    depending on the charger it could take up to 1hr min to charge and depending on how your running , 15-20 min straight running on stock battery is about right.

    it definitely takes an hr or more to charge, just thought I'd get at least 25min out of it?

    Charger is a Onyx 245

    How many mah's are on the battery? That will make a big difference on run time

    15 min is pretty good for the stock pack.
