I have Turnigy 5200 2s lipos and 6 cell minh packs. I honestly cant tell a difference in performance. So i just run 6 cells so it still waterproof

I run 2s lipos...... anywhere from 500-1500..... I like them because they're smaller and easier to fit in places a bigger pack would, especially on an EDGE tuber where there isn't much room and keeping it inside is a cleaner look than having packs on the axles.

i run 1300mah 2s from Holmes hobbies and a 1300mah elite 2s. nice and small and take up the half of the battery tray I have to use. Its also nice being able to use the same batts out of my comp crawler so I dont have a ton of batts layin around, and easy to swamp.

I run a 3s 1350mah Turnigy Lipo. Fits well without being huge! I get about a 30 - 40 min run time with moderate use. I prefer the 3s for wheel speed. Really depends on what your esc can handle.

I get my batteries from hobbycity.com. Great prices! For a charger, I have a venom charger...will charge pretty much everything you would run on an rc.

I run a 3300 mah losi 2s its short and stubby i like it helps with weight by keeping it out of the wheels less rotating mass
