    Please Help!!!

    Just sold my power cell batteries so I can go lipo, and I need your guy's feedback. I found an 2s 8200 Mah Lipo battery that I can pair up to use in my Summit. HOWEVER, it says it will fit into a stock Slash 2wd! I want to know how many races I could do on one battery (they are 8 to 10 minutes long and about 3 a day), and how long it would last run time. Need to know cause I will be buying in a couple days. Here is link to batt.

    not shure about run times but should be ok from what ive heard and for size


    pulled directly from your link

    PACK DIMENSIONS: 138mm Long x 43.5mm Wide x 26.5mm Tall, 355g. This pack readily fits into the Traxxas ERevo and Summit and also fits the Traxxas Slash 4WD and Slash 2WD. Pack can be made to fit the Traxxas Rustler and Stampede 2WD with minimal modifications. (Please check your vehicle for size and fit.)

    I'm getting 2 + hours crawling on a set of the 8200 mah.I'm getting a second set.shipping is very painful on these.... i have two sets of 5000 mah lipo.Usually have a extra set of lipo just in case for the guys who don't have extra

    Quoted by jamann;

    well if it can push around a heavy summit for hours it will give you some pretty impressive run times, but it is a kinda big battery for racing.
    With great brushless comes great responsibility.

    and that extra weight might effect handling and speed. a 5000 mah battery weighs 275g while a 8200mah weighs 355g. Maybe it is not enough weight to notice. I was thinking weight but i said size

    in my opinion a 2s would be best for racing because 3s on a 2 wheel drive slash might be too much.
