    Losi Micro T 1/36 Battery Options

    Hi --

    I plan to get a Losi Micro T 1/36. It comes with a 4.8V, 150mAh NiMH. I have been looking around to try to understand what my options are for upgrading the battery.

    My goals is: what is the best way to increase the run time (for basic tooling around not racing).

    What are the NiMH and the LiPo options? I realize if I was going for more speed I would upgrade to LiPo -- would that also then increase my run times for non-racing driving?

    Would a brushless motor upgrade affect the run time and/or speed?

    Can I just get multiple batteries and then easily swap them out to have a 1/2 hour run from say 3 batteries?

    I have a Dremel and am comfortable modifying the car to fit a non-standard battery if that would be required to get more run time :)

    I did quite a search for this information prior to this post on my own but I have yet to come with a comprehensive list of all the possible options and what those options would result in as far as run time and/or speed increases.

    Thank you!

    The NiMH packs gave me a good amount of runtime. I also had a good peak charger and about 7 of those batteries, so I never ran out. Also, for quick swapping, ditch the battery door hold and put a piece of velcro on the top and the battery. It can be changed in less than 10 seconds that way.
