    Venom

    Would Venom's do me till Christmas?
    I can't afford GP's yet so will 2 venom 3000mah give me much power?
    I will then probbaly (when I get the money..) buy some GP4300 7 cell matched (how much $US will this cost)

    4300's would cost like $125 on ebay for two packs. i guess venoms would get you through although i have never used them myself.

    I'd say they should last you 'till x-mas, So, give them a try. I see that venom came out with some 4300 stick packs, at least I think that's what voltage they were.

    I might just get 2 new venoms for like $60 for the time being, i got 1 venom 3000mah at the moment but i think putting 2 new ones in would be better.
    My shocks arrive Monday..YAY i can use my e-maxx on its 4th run since new=D

    Get 2 GP3300's from Radio Shack, 2 packs will be $50 which is less then 2 of the Venom packs and you will have more punch and runtime.
    It's a Jeep thing, you wouldn't understand.

    go for the radio shack gp3300s, theyre high quality cells. i was really suprised by the increase in power from my other 3000mah batts. i can pull wheelies from standing still and the run time is awesome. if i were you, i would get like 2 of them now, then at x-mas, get 5 more and convert seven 6-cell packs to six 7-cell packs. thats what im doin

    4300 is their capacity (in mAh), not voltage.

    Windwagon and I both have venom 3300's and we are not happy with them: bad cells. OK for 10 runs or less and then no more juice. Save your money and ONLY buy GP or IB's. You will regret it otherwise. Buy them on Ebay; plenty of new GP and IB packs (6 or 7 cell).

    Those look like the Radio Shack packs... Just with out the little Radio Shack sticker in the upper right corner of the label. They're the same thing... RS just adds their label apparently.

    Isn't Australian money different than US? Even if it's $30 there it's still a good deal IMO.

    It's actually cheaper before shipping. That shipping price is nuts!
