Default LiPo RX pack question?

I have a Mugen MBX5R and want to change to a LiPo setup, i was wondering if anyone knows where to buy the LiPo RX Packs from, something along the lines of a 7.4v / 2cell / 2000ma?

Hi there, Have been using the VXR lipo and regulater in my MBX-5R since they became avalable really. Can't complain at all works very well.Had to do alittle hacking around of the BOX on the car to make room, but it all fits

Don't forget the VXR regulater at present only works with Spektrum + i think HRS futaba recievers......

The Much-More 7A one looks to be very good and i don't believe it has any compatability isssues. I'm just trying to get around to wiring in the one i picked up on the weekend to try it out ....... you can never have to may amp's.

Espicially when using 2 powerfull digital servo's in an 1/8th car

Tis nice not worrying about the RX dumping. I now have no need to charge on the day at all.

I use 2 LRX-222000's. 1 for qualifying and another for the mains. But this past weekend i ran the 3 qualifiers and a 15 minute main all on the same pack

Like i said it's great not having to worry about ur RX dumping and another nice thing is that i often charge up my lipo mid week while working on the car, But with lipo there's no need to re-peak on the weekend before racing just wire it in and your good to go
