    Lipo or NIMH

    I am buying my daughter a slash 4x4 for Christmas. She is 5 so it will be in training mode for a while. I run Traxxas 3S in my slash 4x4 so a charger is not a problem. Do I just stick with NIMH or go 2S?

    It depends, would you have to buy nimhs, or do you already have them? If you have nimhs, I'd use those. If you have to buy batteries, I'd get the lipos.

    Have to buy batteries. I am looking at the fact of NOT reprogramming ez peak charger except for cell count and DON'T want to go back to nimh I love lipo since I made the jump.

    Yes got 2 to handle all the 3S for my slash wich is way too fast for her but she wants to drive so I will get her her own for some good daddy daughter bash time and repair time.

    I would go lipo since you have to buy new batt anyway just for the fact of runtime on training mode your looking at 45min+ on a 5000 mah pack.
