    3s lipo battery recommendations

    I'm slowly getting back into RC cars and I want new batteries for my rustler. What brands are good now? I'd obviously be using these together for a 6s set up, so I don't want to spend an arm and leg for the batteries. I'm using the 1/8th scale castle creations motor and speed control.

    venom!!!! And here's why: if something happens in the first year you get a brand new battery. And after that it's 30% off. Great warranty quality batteries.
    100Mph isn't fast enough!

    Our venom batteries always go out, and perform pretty badly. The warranty is better than the product itself. We've bought lots of venom batteries but not anymore, sorry.

    I take it you don't know what the kv rating is on your motor, seeing you disregarded my question?

    Yeah I just noticed. Apparently we were writing at the same time. sorry bout that. Have you always had that in your rusty and how does it perform? Reason I ask I have the CC 2650 in mine and the 2200 in my p4de. Was thinking maybe to swap just to see how it does perform.

    I've had the VXL system in it, from when it was a stampede 2wd. It's crazy, with the 1/8th scale 2200kv motor on 6s. Even on 3-4s tires blow and gears explode. You should be careful when driving it

    Just picked up a 2s & a 3s SMC lipo. Saw others above posted names so I hope I didn't break a rule. Only ran the 2s so far but holy toledo batman! I don't know how I'm going to keep the front tires on the ground with the 3s since the 2s picks the front off the ground at just about any speed and flips it over, LOL.

    I twisted the tire off the rim with the new 2s and flipped the bandit, LOL. Guess the super glue didn't do it. Put the GRP's on with the 3s and it spun the tires. Still too cold outside, not enough traction with them yet.
