Lipo's that are worth the extra cash.
For Blinky classes "C" ratings are crucial, some brands have a C rating of 100 which would be another brands 70 only because every company has a different way of measuring that rating. Get the highest C you can for blinky.
Iat the moment I'm using Orca 7000mah 80C and love them so far, they use 5mm bullets and I feel it makes a noticeable difference.
I used rev tech 100c and OHP 65c and they felt the same as far as power.
If you don't want to she'll out the $100-$150 for some of these look into SMC and find the highest C rating you can. Great batteries, I heard they come off the same assembly line as the rev tech batteries and were recommended to me by at least 3 other guys that have been racing for 10+ years, great price too from $50-$80 if I remember correctly.. Also check out EAmotorsports.com, his stuff is always the best and express as well

Looks like I may have to pack lunch now!

All kidding aside, you are going to like a decent pack! If you are still in doubt, try a high end pack from me for a heat.

Is there a front spool that is not plastic for the EX. I haven't had a problem yet but just want to know in case I need one.
Thanks

Yes, there is the Hybrid Spool Set #MP-TP-0003. Alloy center section with Delrin outdrives, and uses the TC-PMJS02 One-Way 40 tooth pulley. The optional Steel outdrives are HIGHLY recommended, #MP-TP-0004.

FWIW the stock plastic spool works well and is reliable, just use the Steel or Alloy outdrives.

But the Hybrid Spool is a really nice looking and functioning piece!
