    Moving to LIPO: one pack or two?

    I don't race, I bash at an relatively unused, but groomed, church softball field. Only in the grass in late fall and early spring, otherwise I run on the dirt/dust/mud depending on rainfall.

    I've been running 2-4200 NIMH traxxas packs. I usually get about 30 total minutes of run time. ESC and motor temps always good with my gearing and driving. This in a slash raptor velineon.

    So.....would you recommend buying two packs to give me about the same runtime or one larger mah pack for that runtime?

    Even the same mAh count LiPo will have slightly longer run times... at least in my experience.

    I would pick up two 5,000mAh(ish) 2S packs.

    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    Wow. Got 30+ minutes out of each 5000 SPC pack. Loving lipo. I should have made the upgrade months ago.
