    If your asking what to run in your summit, the answer is two cell. Three cell is two much with out moding for strength and cooling.

    Up to you what you'll wanna use, it's in the manual on what's recommended for the vxl3m

    And I repeat, go 2S. Look on the traxxas website.

    Fully charged 2S LiPo: 8.4v
    Fully charged stock battery: ~9v

    Voltage is a direct correlation to speed... so with stock batteries you will go faster for the first few pulls of the trigger, then you will be going faster with LiPo as LiPo does not loose voltage as easily as NiMh.
    Another thing with LiPo, it delivers the power faster... meaning you will get up to speed quicker.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    I"m fully aware of how the batteries work. I was asking for real world experiences between them.

    just to confirm, I've tested this with my son and the nihm isn't even close to the lipo. lipo will flip the truck over easily if you don't control the throttle, nimh won't flip it even when just starting.

    LiPo also has less voltage dip under draw.
