    Buying a new Ken Block Brushless next week

    What are the best Li-Po batteries to get for the Ken Block? I am purchasing one next week and plan to buy everything at once. I don't want to go really fast just something around 30 to 40 mph and have some fun. I was thinking about either of these:

    Traxxas 11.1V 3300mAh 3 Cell 25C 1/10 LiPo Battery 2846 $52.00

    Venom 15038 30C 11.1V 3200mAh 3S LiPo Hard case $49.99

    What do ya'll think? What is the best charger to use also?

    Thanks for the replies.

    Maybe you should try the car out stock before you go ahead and get lipos. Its actually nippy standard. Iv heard that a few people use the "THUNDER AC6" charger. Maybe worth looking at.

    If you search the 1/16th forums i think you'll find the general concensus is that 3s is to much, stick with 2s lipos

    Those are not 1/16th scale batteries. you need the correct size. About the largest 3s battery you will find (to fit in the battery trays) is a 1600mah in the 1/16th scale.

    I use the Thunder AC680. almost same as the AC6, but has a fan to keep temps down, has a 80w power supply, and can charge at 6amps(AC680). rather than 5amp(AC6)

    Finally bought my Ken Block

    I finally bought my Ken Block with all the upgrades that I thought I might need. Besides the telemetry items and lipo batteries, is there anything that I missed?
