    I think the trx supplied bat is a great starter (taste). With that said, do you want a taste, or do you want a MEAL? In my dealings with trx batteries, they fade after a few months.

    Its actually NOT a series 3 battery. The RTR battery traxxas ships with all its trucks its a 3000mah battery...
    The actual series 3 battery is 3300mah and IMO, after running both back to back the series 3 is a MUCH better battery. The RTR battery is not a bad battery at all though. Mine alway held at least 3200mah....

    It looks the same as the series 3 and 4 now with clear shrink on it... but its not. Its a 3000mah battery and the cells arent as good as the series packs.

    i use the pack that came with the truck, and it seems to be a decent little battery.

    In all the pics ive seen of the pede 4X4 its the standard RTR battery that just says "power cell" on it... the series batteries say SERIES 3 or 4 in big letters.

    Other than the Slash 4X4 Ultimate, which includes a Series 4 (4200mAh) battery, all Traxxas RTRs with an included battery are equipped with a 3000mAh battery (no series number). Series 3 is 3300mAh, and Series 1 batteries are the packs we include with 1/16 vehicles. They are rated at 1200mAh.
