Gens Ace work well for me. I also have some Venoms but they don't seem any better for the money.

More feedback on the EAM versus the Gens Ace, please? Explanation or comparison would be helpful

Gens Ace are a good value for the money. They don't last very long though. Mine gave up after 8 months, always balanced and stored at 1/2 charge. EA puts out the highest quality items. He has done his homework testing all the popular batteries. You might not see much of a difference in VTA because the current draw is low. But if I were buying a battery I would go for EA

Default VTA Battery

Im still running my 1+ year old Dynamite Speedpack 20C 5000mAh. Perfect for VTA. If you think you need anything much better you are silly.

I really hope its VTA legal it would make my year! Then I just need to start to lobby for a new motor option like the one from General Electric. They are making a sweet 25.5 motor that should be legal just because they are making it. He already has the new Square D ESC that should set the standard for VTA racing I hope it gets its stamp of approval ASAP as well. Things are looking up for VTA!!!!
