What are the biggest 2c lipos that will fit in the battery compartments
Also what are the biggest nimh batteries that will fit
don't forget about this one... http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXBLNC&P=0
I have two 8.4v 5000mah dtx packs that I use for water runs and they are a tight fit top to bottom, side to side there is a little room but not much, takes a little effort to get them out when there hot if you don't like to pull on the wire connector.

Spc 8200 mah are pretty popular around here as well.
Mountains cant stop me
they have tried
I bought a pair of the spc 8200's and so far so good. Long run times.
I just switched from the spc 8200 to the smc 9400. I been meaning to do a time comparison but both batteries run for so long I would probably die from boredom.
the smc fit with a few mm to spare.
I think those 10000mah Traxxas batteries are design to fit another Traxxas vehicle. Slash, XO-1, or maybe that long Funny car they now sell.
MAN, Use Common Sense.
Outside? THERE IS NO BOX !
I know the lipos give you more punch but do they affect the top speed.
If not I will go with nimh because it is cheaper and I can get 8.4v.
Lipoes will not lose the punch and power is more stable consistant
The nimh may only be better for the first min or so then gradually drop off. The Lipo's are consistently strong and last way longer. I keep my stock nimh as backup but have 4 lipo's for normal use. Don't want to keep switching the lvc on/off.
I just don't feel like spending the extra money but I probably will.
