Default Battery choice for Losi 8ight truggy

What type/cell/voltage/mah batteries would you recommend for a Losi 8ight Truggy using a NEU 1515 1Y and a Monster Max ESC for track use? I am open to both LiPo and LifePo4 (A123) choices.

I would go for a Flightpower 4s 5350mah lipo pack or Flightpower 4s 5000mah pack. Any battery with Enerland cell based packs are pretty much the best packs around. (Flightpower, Trakpower, Polyquest, Neu energy, and a couple others)

These are the two packs I named above:

I run the PolyQuest 4s 6000 in my Losi 8T with a Neu 1515/1Y geared 13/46
