    Better Batteries?

    Just a quick question. Right now I am running Venom 25c 5000mah LiPo batteries. But the price for those has me only wanting to own the 2 that I have. I have been looking online and came across SPC batteries. Its the same rated battery but for about half the cost of Venom ones. Are SPC LiPos as good as Venom???

    yes if even better. traxxas lipos are good as well with a good warranty as well maybe a little higher price than spc but good as well and will fit you trx truck with no mod needed w/o the exception of the ext. battery with like a Higher MAH lipo.

    ya mine will do the same if i had traction. much of that i believe comes from the higher discharge. pretty awesome though. it just took a really long time to get my ******** in. i might order an spc and see how long it takes to get that one in.

    My spcs get here the next day, but I am in the same state. They will arrive quick I guarantee.

    The SPC packs will be better than the venoms... You will not be disappointed.

    I live in Missouri (sometimes we call it Misery) and the SPC's arrive in 4-5 business days.

    True, more power to the wheels can get more traction, but a tighter diff will do the trick. I use Bad Horsie diff grease for fantastic lock-up at the wheel, but you can use thick grease to get about the same effect.

    SPC batteries are top notch!! I have two of the 2s 5000mah and one 3s. I can get around 45mins runtime on the 2s packs each! The 3s I have only run here and there because the truck is crazy fast on it
