Getting the VXL soon.

What do you think its going to be like in the backyard?

Do you think it will be controllable or will it spin like crazy with the lipo?

Can you turn the power down to 50%?

Backyard is 15m by 10m.

the ESC does have a 50% power profile. im running a maxamps 5000mAh 11.1V lipo pack and it is insane. it doesnt just spin. but you have to have crazy smooth throttle. if you jump just a little bit you will pull the wheels up. just run smooth and you got yourself a crazy fast truck that makes nitro guys feel bad. hell it makes guys in corvettes feel bad. i found that out myself. hahaha. and as for a backyard basher. it might be too much. but trust me when you see the power it has you will take it into the street and will be taking it 60mph. its irresistable. and the 5000 gives me roughly 25 minute run times. charges in about an hour. but one is enough. after driving this thing for 25 minutes your glad when the battery dies.

Where is the cheapest online shop to buy this battery?

I was thinking of getting an Associated Pulsar Competition 3 Charger
or Duratrax ice

for the battery. i dont know the best place. my LHS sponsors me so i get discounts. go to www.froogle.com and look it up. thatll give you good prices. as for chargers. i cant say anythign about those two. i know the ice is good. its been voted best charger for like 3 years straight now. i use the Hyperion EOS 5i DP charger. its fast and simple. peaks the pack in anywhere between 30 minutes and an hour. all depends on how drained it is and how off balance it is. and with that i use the Hyperion LBA10 net 6s+ balancer. simple to use. just plug it in and it does its work. dont know about where to get that either because once again i got it at my lhs

Check of the VXL combo on Maxamps.com. No, I don't work for them, and I'm not looking to get a free T-shirt out of this post... just happy with their products. $300 for the battery, charger, and balancer.
