    need help on what to get first!

    iam planning on going lipo and need sugestions!

    i got the battery recomdation from this post: http://monster.traxxas.com/showpost....25&postcount=2 (i used search...u guys should be proud!)

    i know ill need to get a lvc.

    i dont think ill beable get everything at once. so what do you think i should get first the batteries or the charger?

    i all ready have a duratrax ice charger and a powersupply from hobbypeople.

    i have the ability to run 8s 4400 or 4s 8800 with this set up. iam eventually going to get the mmm and myby a brushless to go with it(iam still keeping the stocker for most of the time). i like the idea of this cuse if i want to go super fast i can or if i want to let people use it i can. plus when the erbl comes out ill have a trick mounting solution for this bad boy!

    If the Ice charger can charge lipos, I would get the batteries first so you'd be able to run the truck.

    I got my Duo from rclipos.com. Every place I looked had it for the same price or was sold out. So I went with rclipos since they had it in stock and offered free shipping. I had a good experience with them.

    for another $7.00 bucks you can get these twice the lipo you listed. you will get close to 60min run time with 2 on your summit!

    egnix...
    thanks for the sugestion. i need to find the manule to the ice and see!
    as for the rclipos.com thing, if i end up ordering from him i am going to pick it up personally cuse OCC is rite around the corner. save them some money! the only reason why i like the duo is it cuts charge time in half for the summit!

    akrimmel...
    i was thinking bout that also but the batteries that i linked to will be 4s 8800 in parallel set up. and if i want to have some speed i can wire it up in series set up and get an 8s set up. who knows though...i might get the spc one cuse they have a good rep!

    No but they sell the smc ones which are in a case. The lipos are definately worth it. They are awesome.
