i think a 1700 whould be your best bet if they dont have a 2000 ,as for the gange i would say a 12 gauge or a 13 gange i never change my wires on my reciever pack,just make sure that the wire not to thick to fit through your battery box hole and so your battery cover can close also

There are 2 main sizes: 2/3 A-these are used as nitro rec packs, and packs for mini vehicles
The other size is subC-these are used as power packs for larger vehicles like 10th scale offroad-onroad

So the size you need is 2/3 A

The normal battery size used in a receiver humpack is 2/3A

These cells are 17 x 28mm, are available up to 1600/1700mAh and can handle discharge currents up to 30 amp.

I have never seen 12 ga on a receiver pack more like 16. 12 is what is used on reg 7.2 car packs it's overkill for a receiver pack and it prob won't fit onthe box. When I ran nimh I had great luck with the trinity ep or ib 1600 packs they would run for an hour and always treated me well no matter how I miss treated them they were around 25 bucks.

+1 if youre really worried about quality, just get a decent name brand pack. like Orion, or Reedy.
