    How much runtime?

    The Traxxas 2s 12800 mAh pack has quintuple digits for mAhs, so how much runtime in minutes? Want to get Ultimate and I am wwondering if that would have insane runtime. (Buying TRX 3s with it.)

    Im getting 55 minutes from my 2S 8000 mAh Lipo - 12800 mAh seems a bit overkill and will most likely cost an arm and leg... Make sure you take multiple breaks because running even an hour straight will eventually do some damage due to over-heating.

    WOW!!! I get 35-40 minutes out of my 2S 5000's, I'm betting 1.5 hours, at least!

    I get over an hour in my scaler with a 4200mAh NMHI, I'm betting I could run the wheels bald before that 12K pack died...!

    You would get lots of runtime but that battery would take a long time to charge also. If it were me I would buy 2 smaller batteries instead of one huge one...

    Takes no longer to charge a big battery if you have a decent charger

    12,800 mah charged at 1c (12.8 amps) still takes an hour
