    Well if you want to stick with nimh get some Traxxas power cell 5000mah 7 cells. Those are great batteries. They will give you a good amount more run time but very little more power.
    You can't use lipo batteries with the evx-2 esc you have unless it is the one with lvc.
    A fantastic charger to get would be the onyx 245. It can charge lipos and nimh, and two at a time, so you'll have two batteries charged in the time it took to charge one before.

    You could get an lvd also and run lipos.

    I have held off buying a set of LiPo batteries for over six years - just bought two packs two weeks ago - and have to say they really do make a huge improvement - they're more consistent, deliver more current, and delivery more run time. I never ran LiPo with the brushed motors, but I'd imagine you run the risk of burning them out at the higher currents involved.

    If a brushed motor is damaged while running LiPo, it is typically the result excessive motor heat due to the longer runtimes made possible by larger LiPo capacities.

    Lvd can be good option for your battery solution.
