I just got an 8.4v 5000mah Racer's Edge Nimh battery, and it doesnt work. It's fully charged and turns on
my rusty, but the motor goes an inch and refuses to move. I switched to a venom 4600 and it worked fine.
Any reason why?
try recharging it or you got a bad battery . the higher the mah the longer run time .

Thanks guys. I thought I read somewhere that xl-5 esc handles up to 4800mah, but I may be wrong. Lets try this out again....
On my xl5 rusty I run a 5000 mah 9.6v nimh battery and get an easy 20-25 minutes out of it.
Recharged it and my battery works fine. Could be just a charger mishap, or maybe I imagined it green light out of excitement. But it's all good now
More Mah= longer runtime! Have fun with the battery you bought! When it's time to get a new one, upgrade to lipo though!
with the more MAH in a battery the longer the runtimes and the higher the heat build up as well keep an eye on temps both esc and motor and battery
