After I spent the whole morning at the track today with stock tires and stock batteries with my Traxxas Slash 2wd VXL, I came home and decided to throw down the cash and go LiPo! I got a new charger and a Venom 25c 5000mah battery. I also bought new Proline rims for front and rear with Proline Barcode tires on them for racing on clay. Glad I went this way and NOT looking back. Also in the pics are my workstation. I think I have a nice setup!
Very cool. That lipo should really wake the truck up.
Yes it did wake that truck up! Has to be a few MPH faster and I went for about 25mins on one battery charge. I love LiPo and I dont know why it took me so long to reach this point. I guess I read to much into the horror stories.
