    Thinking about getting lipo and charger...

    Need some suggestions. I want to be able to use the house to charge so a/c d/c would be great. I think I want a 2s 20c lipo battery. I'm not concerned about going 60 mph. I also looked at some nimh batteries from jon the battery guy. They are around $80 and the lipos I looked at were around half that. Any thoughts?

    I recently went to the lipo packs and i like em. I do still have my nimh packs for when others want to drive my stuff. I have a nice 3s 40c 2650mah pack thats just too fast to have fun with. I have a 2s 20c 2200mah pack thats nice but its actually not quite strong enough fer the amp draw from da motor. I have a 2s 40c 3000mah pack on order that should be here in a day or two that will hopefully be just right. I got them from hobbypartz.com , it is a good place to check. Unfortunately the charger i want still isnt in stock so im usin my crappy old one.

    racers edge" have some really good lipos for 45 bucks 2s 20c 5000mah and they balance perfectly and discharge the same!
    As for a good charger the Dynamite Passport is a 6s charger and its only 60-65 bucks! i have both and i'm really happy with them.
    The battery has a really long run time allso.

    another good part about this Is the racers edge battery comes prefitted with the TRX high current connector all you need to buy is the dynamite bannana that also has a trx high current connector but if you like deans that comes with the charger!!!

    Just a note, have you seen the new price on the SPC 3S 5000mah Lipos? Might think about checking them out... $50 for a brand new pack with the best warranty in the business... cant go wrong there.

    If you're looking for cheap lipos, look no further than the Blue lipos from Hobby Partz. They're $20 for 2 cell 5000mah 20c lipos.

    http://www.hobbypartz.com/83p-5000mah-2s1p-74-20c.html

    The hardcase lipos should fit with no problem, however, they're nearly always out of stock. The softcase lipos are a tight squeeze, but they still fit.

    You won't find a better deal anywhere else.
