There are Lipo's and Life's w/ the JST connector (the little red receiver connector) from quite a few brands out there Xceed sells them IP, Me (SkyRocket), Maxamps, Hyperion, Common Sense RC, they all have JST connectors on their lipos.
Not sure why everyone is so quick to switch to lipos I run my 2/3a cells in all my gas cars, I get about 1.5 hours of run time from my NIMH cells I like the way the car feels with the weight in the bottom of the chassis from the NIMH.
I run a RRR as well and Xceed sells a super tiny regulator that I use in conjunction with my Lipos and it all fits quite nicely into my car, but as i said above i like the weight of nimh better.
