    Stock NiMh 3000 Mah 7c 8.4v battery life on brushless?

    Just wondering how long the stock battery lasts on a VXL system (Traxxas Rustler VXL) while giving a lot of throttle because my friend gave me his battery because he bought a LiPo and he is 'never going to NiMh ever again' and the battery he gave me only lasts abut 10-15 minutes but only takes 30 minutes to charge at 4 amps, is this right or is the battery loosing its charge? thanks

    Sounds about right.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    I had a 4600 MAH 7cell 8.4 volts and it lasted a good 20-25 minutes. So yours sounds about right being 3000mah
