So, I did all of my research on lipos and picked out the traxxas 7.2v 7600mah. I called a local RC track and they said soft pack lipos arent allowed in our buliding. Checked around and most tracks are like that. Not sure if im gonna race or not but i don't want to spend big $$$ on a lipo that is going to eliminate that possibility. So does traxxas make a hard case lipo? if not what kind do i get? My freakin head is spinning just trying to pick out batterys.
No traxxas doesnt make a hard case but I wish they did. I just bought a onyx 2s 4000mah hard case and it just fits. The height of the battery is a little big. But it performs well and was only 44$
Slash 2wd, Slash 4x4, 30th digger, Rustler VXL
Check out the SPC 5400 50c 2s hardcase, or the 6000 30c 2s. Both are around 50$, and both are really good packs.
Ya can't polish fertilizer...
Look at the Gens Ace hard case batteries - at my local track these are the most popular Lipos. Gens Ace also makes hard case Lipos with higher ratings. The Gens Ace batteries run about $45 and up. I have four of the 5000mah 40C continuous/80C burst batteries for use with my Slash 4X4.

Venoms are pretty good too!
Thrash It, Bash it, Break it, No Regrets!!!
I just purchased 4 of these: http://www.hobbypartz.com/gensace2s50c.html I haven't found too many bad reviews on them and the price can't be beat. You can find traxxas adapters on ebay for $3 or you can just soldier traxxas connectors on.
I also picked up 4 of these but he price has gone up since I bought them: http://www.hobbypartz.com/gensace3s40c.html. They have free shipping on orders over $50

I'm running a venom 4s, dynamite 3s and a trakpower 2s
Sl4sh mmp2400 - savage flux hp XL - vorza flux hp
So 40C is more than enough
Same calculation with 2s
So Im covered at 40C peak on 2s or 3s.
I also have a couple of Racer's Edge 20C 5000mAh 2S packs. They're ok, but lack the power of the 40 or 50C Venom and I do not like the plug in leads (they get in the way and the balance lead seems fragile).
Just got a couple of Venom 3s 30C 3200mAh packs - can't wait to try them out. They are the same size and configuration as the 2s packs and I'm hoping they'll prove to be as long lasting.
im running the skylipo 3s 5000mah (roar approved) whatever that means. . Runs really good and can take a beating. HAd it fly out of my friends truck a couple of times and the case held up!
