    I prefer lipos 5000mah or higher and 50c or higher. The only problem is getting them with the connectors (Traxxas ID style) to fit your new truck.

    SMC batteries. Get a 2s and a 3s. Their website will specify which ones will fit the slash 4x4 chassis. And I am pretty sure the original traxxas connectors will work just fine on the newer model vehicles.

    Yes, the legacy hi-current connectors work with today's Traxxas iD connectors. Could you imagine the chaos the internet would be in if they didn't??

    The only one's i use are the Trraxxas 11.1 3s batteries, they last a long time in my TRX 4 crawlers.

    I just got the 1/16 Slash 4x4 for my daughter. It came with 1 NiMH battery: 1200mAh (6-C flat, 7.2V, 2/3A). If I get her one or two of the LiPo's - 2200mAh 7.4v 2-Cell 25C LiPo Battery, how much more improved run time, etc are we going to see? Is it worth it or should I just get her another NiMH? Right now the NiMH only give her about 30 minutes of run time. If I buy the LiPos I plan on getting the EZ Peak Plus charger as well.

    Technically nearly twice as long. The mAh is the gas tank so the larger it is the longer it'll run.
