    I was looking at both brands but with the spc i was worried that it wont fit as the size of their battery is a little taller, however it does have good specs- 3s 11.1v 5000mah 50c

    The traxxas i know would be an obvious choice as it will fit in the compartment perfect ans is made for this car however im not keen on the 25c rating and the price which is double the price of spc.

    Can anyone confirm if the spc lipo will fit in the xo1?

    I have yet to have a problem with any Traxxas lipo. I get great performance and they don't heat up. It is a good possibility they are conservatively rated. C ratings can be highly exaggerated from what I have read. What I am not keen on is the connector and Id technology Traxxas has come up with. I use my own high output charger and won't be using theirs as they charge way to slow. I guess I'll cross that road when I get there though. SMC and SPC have the kind of following I would look for in a battery manufacturer. Proof in the pudding one would say. I may try them sometime soon.

    The Duratrax onyx packs have done great for me so far. 4 crashes and still going strong.
