Default E buggy battery question

I have a Mbx6 eco w/ an orion rx8 pro esc, and a Tekin t8 1900kv motor. I race at a track w/ an average 27 second lap time. Would I be able to finish an 8 minute main with 4000mah batteries or would I need more mahs?

IMO, I would say go for more. I run 5800 packs and make 10-12 minute mains, but barely. I've had my LVC cut out just as I hit the finish line before haha

Not only that but if want the pack to last for any length of time I would recommend a 5000Mah minimum for a setup as large as yours. The smaller packs will work but you are pushing them to their max so often that they fail much faster. There is always the risk of the crash that will end your pack but for the money you spend you might as well get something that will hold up to the test of time.
