He didn't have his Raiton Armor active, he activated it when Naruto attempted to run past him.
Also, even if he did have his Raiton Armor active -- which he did not -- it's common sense that he wouldn't move so fast as to end up leaving Tsunade behind. How else did Kakashi, Obito and Rin keep up with the Fourth Hokage, who the Raikage stated to be even faster than himself? The Fourth Hokage simply controlled his speed to allow them to keep up. It's potentially even doubtful that Tsunade would be able to keep up with the Raikage, even without his Raiton Armor being active.
Which brings us to another vital question. If Sage mode and Kyuubi chakra make ninjutsu better, how would Naruto's sexy no jutsu turn out?
for what it said in the databook tusnade is strong and there's so much that we haven't see of her beside her physical power and healing and good control of chakra.
Tsunade Databook 3 Stats/Data.
Didn't Bee say that Naruto couldn't use kage bushin on kyuubi mode?
Why would he do it?
Naruto will do anything to be in the battle with his comrades. naruto can't stand around while everyone risks their life to protect him and he knows that he has the power to change and break this circle of hate in this world.

I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if, at some point, Tsunade personally takes it upon herself to prevent the Raikage from going after Naruto. Or imagine if the Raikage ends up indirectly serving as the remainder of Naruto's training towards fully mastering his bijuu bomb rasengan?

Consider for a moment that she actually used her most high level Medical Ninjutsu Technique, and used it through Katsuyu on every single person inside the village. It'll be pretty damn exciting to see what else she might be capable of.
I can't see why risk that if he could try first beat him on kyuubi mode, since he could match on speed.

I'm sure Tsunade will display something great. People seem to forget how strong she really is. She can kill pretty much anyone in a single blow and she's mastered the art of dodging and reading opponent movements as a medic to avoid being fataly hit. She may not be on the level of the likes of Naruto and Jiraiya were in terms of combat ability but she is by no means weak. The only time we've seen her fight was when she was rusty against Kabuto, who was said to be Kakashi's equal at the time.
My bet is Tsunade and the other Kage are going to get their chance to kick some serious ass in the not too distant future.

In Tsunade's case, it has a lot to do with the small taste of her potential that I saw in her battle against Kabuto, and a little bit against Orochimaru. Then, I also really respect what she showcased during the Pain invasion. Yea, many would've liked to see her do more in the combat realm, but at least the reasons for her doing exactly what she ended up doing are completely justified, as far as I'm concerned. And what else plays a massive part in my faith in Tsunade is the fact that she is one of the Legendary Sannin. I'll admit -- and this is just being honest -- I have far, far less actual examples to go on when it concerns Tsunade than, say, someone like Neji. But hey, I have a lot of faith in Neji and Tsunade. Neji, more for the amazing things I've seen from him back in part one and obviously knowing that those incredible abilities will only become increasingly more amazing as time passes. Who knows what new techniques he might have come up with.
I just demand and expect amazing things from the greatest genius in the entire history of the Hyuga Clan is all. Ultimately, I may continue to have this blind faith in Neji and Tsunade until Kishi truly closes the door on those two in some serious way. Tsunade, in this case, was reacting in a shocked fashion to the Raikage suddenly talking about killing Naruto, and then actually making a move to go and do such a thing. She wasn't really given an opportunity to show us what she would do if Bee hadn't stepped in when he did, just as Naruto wasn't given an opportunity to showcase what he was about to do in response to the Raikage trying to kill him immediately after talking trash about his father failing.
Clearly Tsunade didn't get to do anything else because Kishi has something else in mind regarding Bee. I've always held the position that I will always take nice story and character development every now and then over just throwing battle after battle our way. There are plenty of chances to give us action. Tsunade, just like Neji, I feel, will have her time to show us what else she can do.
Why does tsunade need to have amazing fighting skills? I think she has unique and impressive medical jutsus and ok fighting skills. That works for me. I know its the shinobi world, but it's not always about killing someone.

I'm sure she has plenty of amazing things up her sleeves that we've never seen before. Plus, she's incredibly intelligent, so she may be able to come up with some very interesting strategies while in combat. Most important, we have to just come to the realization that not everybody will fight a battle in the exact same ways as some other Shinobi might. I really love that aspect of this manga a great deal.
We sorta have to get away from expecting to just see offensive jutsu after offensive jutsu from each and every character and just accept that ultimately we are still watching a fight, and everyone will fight in their own unique way.
Medical shinobi basically have to stay safe and alive above everyone else in battle. I mean aside from strategist, medical shinobi are usually the furthest away from the front lines and direct combat. Tsunade has just looked helpless in far too many situations. And thus has had to rely on someone else to do the job of a Kage type figure. Which is to prevent tragedies, and if that can't be avoided, then do lead ones shinobi and directly engage the opposition in battle. She is the only Kage that we have seen that acts like a pure support shinobi. And the role of a support shinobi is not one of a Kage. The reason she gets so much strife is because the title she carries does not fit her anywhere near as well as it does other shinobi carrying the same title.
