So truck is powered by this massive battery.

How long can you play , ie battery life?
It would depend on how fast or slow you're playing.

Reviews indicate 30 min with the included battery, and 45 min with one fully charged. Not bad!!

You can easily 3D print adapters to use whatever battery with whatever power tools brand now :) gotta love technology

Someone already made a Bosch battery to Ryobi tools (why?)

18650's are not great for high powered RC use, and the motors are probably brushed. If you have the tool and want the battery it's a neat bonus though.

What's wrong with 18650s? Telsa use them in their cars ;) I know hobbyist uses lipo but whats the issue with cylindrycal lion cells?
The cells used are (usually) rated for their intended, high power drain usage type (eg 20C/40A draw with a 2000mAh cell) if I'm not mistaken

Tesla has a !@#$ ton in parallel but fair point since top brand 18650s can be pretty decent. Ryobi are known to use lgdaha11865 batteries which are rated for about 2.5-5A discharge (which is only about 2C): http://www.staringpower.com/product/lgd ... 0-1300mah/

Looks like they cheapened out on the bundled P102s, I have some older P103, P107 (plus) and the 4AH P108, they must all have different cells lol
