I have a 180mah lipo from that seller: works fine, shipping was good.

As far as what folks are doing about shocks, read through the Stickied Micro Mod Bible at the top of the section - lots of good info covering more than just shocks.

I bought the Losi Micro-t lipo. Ran it once last night, and got 16 minutes of run time; on the stock battery I would get ten minutes.
Wow, the truck is alot faster, makes it easier to climb!!

Well worth the money.

For shocks I am running stock,full droop with losi micro-t rears red on rear (med) and white up front (soft), I have them stretched over the ball end and the shock cap to work as a return spring.

Here is a little vid of them in action

I'm doing this same thing except I'm running white fronts stretched all the way around. Works really well.

I did that initially, I found the rear a bit soft while off camber and on break overs, so I put reds in the rear and that tighten it up seemingly just right
