XXX- If money is no object then I would go with some 4200 capacity batteries. Any top name matching company is fine. Ive always run SMC, and have had no issiues. Also look into Orion, fushion, and trinity, the list goes on and on. You may be better off finding packs cheaper than some of these companies for the same kind of batteries.

any good matcher like promatch, SMC, peak etc... the price depends on the voltage, if you want the best of the best expect to pay $70-$100+ a pack.

what are you talking about? doesnt matter what brand it is. matching is parting cells with the same/almost the same properties like voltage together.

Which you don't need to do if you look into smaller companies with the same packs for alot less. Especially for offroad. If you're running mod club racing 38's are plenty, but stock 42's do help.

Good Luck.

well i buy loose cells, they perform great. of the 3packs i have made so far, no week cells i can see (with my dpd). for club racing i still in the pointy end of field so $20 for a pack is sufficient for me.
