    Not sure, too expensive for me and I haven't seen any yet!
    Strive not to be nitro, but rather to be electric.

    Now, call me rude & ignorant if you like ( bite me ), but I find that a quick search works wonders for finding info if you try a few different search terms on your question or subject; if no clear answer can be found after 5 minutes say, then it's okay to go ahead and ask. Most likely someone will link you to a similar or identical thread if one exists, or they will answer the question if they can...

    ...or you might be ignored totally if the question is too vague or difficult to understand/ makes no sense/ doesn't really have an answer etc etc- I'm not even sure if the traxxas lipos are even on sale yet?

    I agree Army, you know how many threads there are about lipos and gearing in the merv forum. Servo and brushless threads in the summit forum. I think that sometimes people would rather ask or be told something than try to learn it themselves.


    By the way on traxxas' front page it shows their lipos are now shipping.

    Several LHS here in Dallas are stocking them now but they are a tad pricey for only being 25C and I've yet to see any matching Mah to allow a 5s setup. Was figuring with Traxxas being based here in town that their lipos could be a good option since pretty much everything you see in Dallas shops is 90% traxxas... Looks like a no go for me.

    lol, and yet here you are.


    I think the more accurate answer is someone will answer the same questions over and over....

    Funnily enough, I was considering adding 'or I will come along eventually..'- whilst I job hunt I have little else to do besides check the forums and do house cleaning...

    Hummm^

    OP here is my take, & take it for what you want. I would wait tell there is feed back on these batts. & see how they preform. It will be at least 6 months before any real feed back comes out. These batt JMO need a few couple hundred cycles to see how they will last. Need some GUINEA PIGS...
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    lol @ AOD. I was going to say someone will answer out of boredom but it seemed like too much of a stab. Heck, I'm sitting in a hotel lobby having a _________. I'm bored too!

    But if we're going to speculate about Traxxas Lipo batteries.... in my mind I file them under Maxx Amps. Brand names and value rarely mix which is why I've become such an off brand fanboi.

    I just want my watt hours on the cheap!
