What exactually do you want to know?
If you want to know if they are good or not, they are very good battery

first off, they're ni-mh, which doesn't like to be deeply discharged. meaning, stop running your truck and unhook your batteries at the very first sign of performance loss. you can then recharge them.
speaking of which, a good charger is probably the most important factor in the life of your batteries. there are a handful of good chargers out there - but buy a good one up front. i love my Duratrax ICE competition charger, but it may be a bit advanced if this is your first electric r/c experience. there are a few chargers where all you do is plug the batteries in and hit 'start'. nothing else to tweak. keep an eye on them the entire time they're charging - don't leave them in case something happens. and try not to trickle charge them.
check this (http://www.misbehavin-rc.com/pit-lane/batteries/g-batteries-intro.asp) out for add'l good info on batteries and chargers.

Do not run them past the voltage drop!!! They're pretty sensitive cells...
Also store them charged. Recharge every thee months if that's the case...
