    Sorry to mention the name for another vehicle, but it's concerning the battery. I was wondering if these batteries will work. The batteries from the vendetta. They seem to fit the dimensions and they seem to have a little extra room too. Here's A battery I have:

    I think the same. I bougth Rhino 1550 mAh 3S 20C, To use in parallel. I hope it fits on battery box. (http://www.*********.com/*********/s...idProduct=7311) Very cheap, only $15.95 at hobby city. (www.*********.com).

    If you run two in Parallel approx. 30mph and with a pretty good runtime according to Traxxas. Run them in Series and change the Pinion gear as recommended about 50 mph, just with half as much runtime.

    No one knows the exact numbers because we haven't got out eager little hands on them yet!

    Go lipo, it's cheaper, more efficient, and faster.. I seriously do not understand why people waste their time and money with nimh.

    You can get a charger and 2 2s 2200mah packs for under 75$

    I know, this is MY decision, and I said YET. So don't worry about me and lipo. I'm just wondering what batteries are out there, other than lipo or anything else.

    Carbon,
    Check out the thread "The OFFICIAL 1/16th E-REVO/SLASH Battery Thread." There a two pages of battery recommendations and discussions. Some are lipo and some are NIMH. I am with you about wanting to stick with NIMH for a while. I just got my first peak NIMH charger and I have been in this hobby for over 5 years now, I am kind of slow when it comes to battery technology. I just want to stick with what I know for a little bit longer.

    Happy reading!

    Can that charger charge them both at the same time with the adapter?

    the problem with lipos is that they will ruin if you run them in the snow because its too cold.
    Got Li-Po?

    no, give up on that idea, it's unreasonable and unnecessary. it'll take twice as long to charge 2 batteries anyways, so just use the charger as its intended.
