Default Average Run time of the Tmaxx Nitro

What is the average time I will get running the Tmaxx on one tank of fuel? Is it possible to get a little bigger fuel tank? Thanks

So if I run through a tank of gas does that mean I need to give the Tmaxx
a rest or is it ok to re-fill and go? Your comment about running it hot
caught my attention? I thought these babies were good for hours of operation
without worrying about overheating or damagin the engine? Thanks fellas!

The stock maxx tank is 125cc, and with a small block engine you can run anywhere form 10-20, 10 being mostly raceing or serious bashing, and 20 being just dinking around on the track or climbing hills!! I get about 8mins out of my truck before needing to re-fuel, but I run a fuel guzzling .247, soon to be Picco .26 in about 3 or 4 more gallons!!
