    We've had scary experiences with NiMH packs, but nothing scary with the lipos. Frankly, I'm now MUCH more comfortable with the lipos then the NiMH packs.

    It's hard to say, not knowing your driving style and conditions. My taste for a similar Mamba setup for general bashing is 17T or 18T pinion and 86T spur.
