As someone new to RC and specifically a new Slash 5803 I'm confused by what batteries are compatible. Now my Slash motor/electronics are stock and I don't have any plans on changing in the near future. I currently have the NiMH batteries but have heard I can go straight to Lipo. I've also been told you can't use Lipo, it will burn it up.
So what is the real answer here? If I can use Lipos without changing anything else then I'm all for it, if not I'll stick with what I have. The stock motor is more than enough for the track I run on.
Assuming I can use Lipo, can anyone recommend a good brand and model (longer lasting the better, I get about 20-25 mins on a charge now). Also, I assume I'll need a new charger - suggestions there?
Lastly, what are all the pros and cons between the two types of batteries? I'd really like to know.
Sorry for the long post, but I'm a newb here and don't want to burn up my truck by not having enough info.
