    Good lipo battery?

    What lipo do you guys run?

    I have a couple venom 2s and one already lost voltage. They seem to suck. Looking for other options. Lots of cheap good ones out there but none I found seem to be a good fit size wise.

    I like to use the Traxxas batteries and Velcro it down.

    Mah is just how much power storage potential the battery pack has. So the answer is as much as you can fit and afford.

    It depends on what you choose. Usually, more use lipos than nimh batteries.

    I use the Traxxas lipo batteries in my car, I just put Velcro on the side of the battery, and on the chassis, so the battery sits sideways in my car, and it works perfectly. It never falls out.
