    So I heard SPC has more power than gens ace?

    I made a thread and someone recommended SPC batteries so i'm asking what performs better? Someone said their price is bad, but i'm not caring because its for Christmas. I want a 5000 to 5500 Mah 3s lipo with the traxxas plug if you guys can. Thanks in advance.

    I believe they are pretty similar...the gens ace are always out of stock too so another reason to try spc...but you won't be dissapointed with which ever one you choose

    You can order two SPC for just a bit more than one Gens ace (at least with 2s). I would go with the SPC in a heartbeat!!!! Don't forget that if you use 3s batteries you are more liable to break a lot more parts.

    http://www.hobbypartz.com/98p-40c-50...se-direct.html $59.69

    http://spcracingbatteries.com/index....&product_id=58 $40.95

    Both batteries would do just fine for you. You probably wont notice difference between the two. Same ratings, but different price. Its not hard to do the math. Plus you would need an adapter from 4.0 banana to traxxas to use the gens ace

    Haha so [Gens ace: 0.5|1.5 : SPC] I believe that I need to start with 2s? I am only allowed 1 lipo battery. I just dont know. Can anyone tell me Pros and cons about both? And what I should get? Thanks in advance.

    That 8200 2s from SPC is awesome. But, it won't fit in a p4de. It's too long.

    Nono of my lipos fit my p4de. I had to dremel the chassis and use some velcro straps. Works like a charm now!

    Just making sure you know, but those black bold web address that people post are links that automatically take you to the website of the suggested product. That way you wont have to ask repeat questions. Again, most people recommend the SPC battery. Thats what we suggest you get. Here is the link again in case you missed it in previous posts. LOL

    SPC 2S/50C/8200 pack fitment:




    The pack is certainly snug and does not just "drop right in" but I would have no problem installing and running that pack in the Stampede 4WD chassis until the pack literally wears out from use.
