    Any accurately rated 20C, 2S pack 5000mAh or larger will work GREAT in a stock motor powered Summit.

    Yep, Jakey is right, no need for monster packs.

    I just got my (second hand) Summit today, and I did test it with my orion 30c lipo hardcase rocket pack's, and I must say it don't need any more than that. I found the speed and ax really good for such a heavy beast.

    I have some 2s 65-130C from my Proboat Geico I shall test soon just to se if I can feel the extra C 'boost' . In my boat , stepping up from 45-90 to 65-130 , there was a good gain in performance.

    Buy as high a c rating as you can afford. You may decide to upgrade to brushless or something. If you buy small you will have to buy new batteries if you decide to upgrade.

    For cheap and good batteries check out SPC Racing, I'm love mine, and I know many, many other people love them too.
