I have the Slash VXL and I was looking at this chart:
According to that chart, if you are just looking at speed, would you still recommend getting a LiPo battery?
Top speed of stock battery: 35mph
Top speed of LiPo 7600 7.4v battery: 35mph
Top speed of LiPo 12800 7.4v battery: 35mph
Now: From reading other LiPo FAQ's I see that you would get more run time. But not even 1mph more speed? So if I buy an $80 LiPo charger and a $50ish 12800 7.4v battery, I will go no faster than my stock battery with overnight charger?
Is there another advantage I'm over looking other than run time ?
