also how much more power or run time do you get out of more well known batteries than a zippy?
A 5s 5000 is bit porky in a buggy. Typically, when you are going up in voltage, the mah should be coming down.
4s 5000 = 5s 4000 = 6s 3300. These batteries all weigh about the same but the higher voltage ones typically will yield a little bit better run time.
The 2200 motor is really a 4s motor though. 5s should be run on a 2000kv or less if you are primarily racing.
