Default runtime on this battery?

I get about 45 to an hour runtime on my 1400 mah 3s 25c discharge traxxas lipo in my xr10. I wanna purchase some smaller batteries for future comps. Around how much runtime would I get on a 350 mah 3s 65c discharge turnagy nanotech battery? I get that its a quarter of the mah's but with the 65c discharge I didnt know how that would factor in.

I really like my 350 mah 65c 3s .. I wouldn't hesitate to run it on a technical course, if it was a course full of holes an flip overs that's goin to dump a lot of juice, I would use bigger. Then again I run 14t puller motors that take the juice hard.. I still get a good 8 mins at worst, 15 mins crawling without a lot of issue.. A battery well worth having, IMO

I run Maxamps 430mah 3s lipos.. Usually 15-18 minutes of runtime, depending on how hard I push it. Perfect for a course, with plenty left over. A little more expensive than most, but well worth it.

Brood pure energy 500 3S I get about 15 - 20 minutes. Can't complain about the Broods at all. I also use elite 800 3S for practice & fun crawl.... The Brood Lipos are priced pretty decent in comparison to other lipos in the same mah

A 350 mah is a quarter the mah of your 1400 you get 45 min out of, so I would roughly estimate a quarter of the run time at 11 min.

Well like i said I get that its a quarter the mah but I dont yet know enough about batteries to know how the higher discharge rate effects them. My current is a 25 c rating and the battery I was talking about ordering is a 65c

I went ahead and ordered 2 lastnight. I got a 500 mah 3s with a 35 c rating and I also ordered the one I was asking about which was a 350 mah 3s with the 65 c rating. Probably order a few more in a week or two.

Right now im running two tekin pro handwound 35 turn motors with 14 tooth pinions so im sure that factors into the equation. Just didnt know hpw the different c ratings changed the run time

You will be good. You will see a performance jump out of ur motors, so squeeze the trigger easy the first time, then find a gap to jump! Lol.. One you couldn't make before..

Puller motors take alot more juice then 540 can motors.. Atleast from what I noticed.. So you will be good with them

As for the C rating.. The smaller the mah, the higher the C should go, to get the same performance.. Charlie gives a better description of this in a thread, maybe he will chime in or someone will link it. (I still can't figure our how to post a link)

Same here. I'm pretty happy with mine and they're a lot cheaper than TP's
