    i'm running promatch 7 cell 5000 nimh gettin 40 mins crawling alot of it climbing steepish rock and dirt/mud trails i don't do much high speed stuff canyon's don't take the abuse to well trucks heavy so that 's why the shorter run times for me if you want speed upgrade. i'm fine with the titan for now got good torque for what i do. take it easy on the first few runs to break in the motor should be good to go. canyon at's+high speed=new tires fairly quick just my thoughts lot's of good info on here i'd go 7 cell for nimh if possible 6 cell=14.4 volts 7 cell 16.8 a little more power
    Mountains cant stop me

    Probably what I will do. Typical break in is on low voltage and no load for 30-40 minutes. I will probably drive around real slow on 3S2P (11-12 volts) and not do any heavy acceleration nor hills.

    I have tried a few different batteries, but, now I run a pair of these

    Got them here

    I get the better part of 60 minutes of runtime on my "Super Summit".
