    Summit Newbie

    Hi all. I just got my Summit as an early Easter present so now I am wondering what the best batteries and charger to get are. This is my first electric R/C, what a change from nitro! Thanks for the help.

    Maxamps made it easy for me , I had a crazy time trying to figure out what to get though I did want lipo. On maxamps.com they have a summit kit and thats what I went for also got the novak 4s lvc , be warned it's some $$$$

    Ford, based on most of the regulars on here(they seem to have a good knowledge of battery tech), Maxamps are way overpriced. I have a pair of 2s2p SPC 12c's, $170ish for the pair. You probably go with some of the 4-5k mah *****s or smc's as well. Stay away from venom 7cell nimh as alot of people have had them blow up. Try the forum search function for chargers, I think there is a hyperion duo charger that alot of people like, maybe from *********. Goodluck!
