Default Starter Box Battery?

Just curious, Im going to get the Ofna truggy/buggy starter box. It says to use a 12v cell or two stick packs. I was going to use a lipo that HTBatteries has. But for now I will just get the two 7.2 packs. I was wondering what quality is needed for this? as far as mah? what would be a good chioce for this starter box? thanks

Hey,
for shure the stick packs.
if u want to spend a lot on 2 batteries get the 4200 mah batteries. if not find some cheap 3000 mah batteries but they will both work well. Just the 3000 won't last as long as the 4200

double 4200 packs, @ least. unless you wanna have them in the charger all day. your best bet is to use the 12vCell or you spend the money and LiPo it.

You should be able to pick up one of these for less than two stick packs.
You only need one, its faster, more powerful, lighter and lasts longer than anything else out there.

the 12v celldoesn't give off alot of power but it gets the job done

the problem with the li-po is if you don't have the right charger then it most likely blow up

the 4200s are your best bet
they might be a little heavy but they give off enough power and u dont have 2 buy a special charger

just a suggestion, but from what ive noticed, id get the ofna box with the single large motor instead of the one with the two 540's and a belt... the big motor seems to turn the motor over better/faster, unless there was just something wrong with the other type that i had used? it didnt work as well as the single motor...

thats what i want.....a lipo... but i didnt want a 12v heavy cell, so i thought id split the differance and go with the 2 stick packs. because i already have a way to charge the stick packs. if i go lipo im looking at 200+ for battery charger and power supply.

IMO that is the best starter box on the market...I have 2 of them 1 with 2 stick packs and 1 with a 12 v gel cell
If you can swing it the 2 stick packs are the way to go...WAY lighter and more umph.....

I have 2 of these boxes, both with HT Batteries 500 lipos. They ROCK. Light , powerful, and hold their charge. They broke in my GO 5 port turbo with out breaking a sweat.
