    RE: twister runtimes with a lipo?

    I can't really say for sure, but I would guess around 15-20 minutes on a 3000 mah battery.

    Lipo VS Nimh is a night and day difference. With LIPO's the batteries are capable of supplying max power over the majority of its runtime, where Nimh's fall off.

    oh yes. you can figure on gaining a few miles higher top speed, and much better acceleration.

    also, a 5000mah 2s lipo can be bought for $25 and provide 25-30 minutes of runtime.
