    Ya I might just get the 1800 that way they should fit for sure and it would be more than enough I think ?? to power the 5700kv motor that would be 1800 x 2packs x 65 = 234000 so 234amps constant which is allot more than the battery's I currently have which are 1550x 2 packs x 25= 77500

    also the sky lipo 1600mah 3s 30c and 40c should fit

    Thinking about tossing the nimhs and running 3s in parallel, but the Venom 1300mahs are definitely cheaper.
    Not sure about the 1400mah, but i picked up the traxxas 2s 25c 2200mah, i couldnt be bothered finding one that would fit as i usually use gens ace and i dont believe they it.

    Anyway, happy with the traxxas lipos. The nimh provided is spongy by comarison, it'll make the rear end of my slash squat under acceleration but the traxxas lipos make the rear end squat and kick out if you are heavy on the throttle; just really punchy and i get atleast 20+ minutes from one lipo and i am usually pretty heavy on the throttle for most of it.

    There maybe better batteries but i'm not going for speed runs, i just use it to muck about, got other cars for going all out.

    is it possible to get this list seperated into 2s and 3s instead of one lump, and also have it updated?

    i know there has got to be more batteries out there....


    in particular, i am looking for good, cheap 3s batteries

    unless you're not in the states.. There's a $60 charge on top of any lipos from SPC to where I live in Ontario but still worth it I think, especially if you order a few larger lipos as well as the small ones

    I messaged them and there's nothing they can do to lower the shipping price either =( I stayed away from them because its just too expensive. Even if I ordered 6x battery packs from them for my MERV, that's an extra $10 a battery before paying tax once it hits the border. I opted for other batteries that cost me $11 ea. instead with a shipping charge that's 75% cheaper.

    yeah I bit the bullet but I think it was still worth it, I got 2x 2s for the mini and the 2 big 2s for the summit probably will look around for local deals next time but that shouldn't be for a looonng time

    definitely, you can do that and go with spc if you're in the states for sure.. if not, maybe just check out the local hobby shop for some traxxas lipos or something
