if you are new to racing and never assemble, or know how to maintain batteries. you can get away with half-decent pack, match or non-matched GP3300 should get you around just fine, if you want matched packs low 1.7v @30amp will be good start without setting you back too much . once you are into it, and have more knowledge on battery care (battery discharger, Equlizing tray), then you can get better matched packs. 1.7-1.8v @30amp ~1-2 IR will be very good pack, I wouldn't worry about run-time at this point because off-road car will easily make 5 minutes with GP3300 no problem.
