Just got my new E-Maxx today!! First real RC! Ordered from Amazon. I also ordered the 2933 charger and wasn't shipped all the parts in the box(working on fixing that now).
My question's are, what is the charge time on the OEM 3000 MAH NiMh battery's and how long will they last during use after the battery is broke in its full charge cycle?
Thanks for all the answers and help ahead of time!
nothing like that new car smell... charge time depends on the charger and number of amps, avg prob 20/30 min.
Run time about the same 20 min. Break in the slipper pads. and some good reading info...

Would you go flip my truck back over??
Hello, just got a new emaxx brushless with the same body, feels good to have 1/8 truck!
My stock 3000 traxxas nimh last about 16 minutes when i drive in the woods, but maby the last 4 minutes going slow.
I realy dont like this nimh battery because the truck is to slow with them, they dont give the punch that the mamba monster need. Going to buy lipo battery soon as possible :-)
You'll want to charge your batteries at around 3 amps, so they'll take roughly an hour to charge. Run time can vary greatly depending on driving style, so it's hard to put a number on it.
