    I am looking to get a few new batteries. I know that my deadbolt is stock so I am wondering what nimh batteries at 3-5 thousand mah will give me run time wise.

    Have you tried lipo?? Lipo will give longer and stronger run times

    I've been running my SCX-10 JK on 5000mAh 2S Lipo for years, and run time is very dependent on the terrain and driving style, I get between two and four hours of run time per pack.

    If you drive like a maniac, you should get at least 1/2 hour out of a 5000 mAh pack. I get about a 1:30 off of 2 5000 mAh in parallel with my dual motored beast

    Driving like trail truck, so mostly slower stuff. Hoping to keep original battery plug, but wondering what plug is best for lipo, otherwise thanks
