In my opinion....
1. The charger looks good, charges up to 10 amps, should work good.
2. I would think that for Drag Racing, short runs, and wanting to get
power to the ground.... A.S.A.P.
You could use a battery with a lower Mah (run time), but as much PUNCH
(meaning "C" Rating) as you can get. So you could most likely save on
some cost by going for a lower Mah, But, get the largest C Rating you
I could be wrong on the battery theory.... so, wait for some other guys
to chime in....
