Default Best battery setup for the 3905 emaxx?

I just got my emaxx and I'm looking for the best "bang for your buck" batteries. I want either a couple of good lipos or at least 3500 mah nimhs. Any suggestions? I'm lost on what to buy. I want at least 20 minutes run time and some good kick. I am also ordering the kershaw twin 700hos soon. What do you guys thank?

Here are those motors at a fraction of the price...

Do a little more work and you can find them cheaper, I've bought them as low as $4/each. "Kershaw Designs" does nothing new or fancy here, they just found a low dollar item that they can hose people on.

Batteries...buy the most you can afford. If you've got a lipo charger, go lipo. Most people I know are happy with 4000-5000mah packs in those...

Heck, if you go lipo for batts, just go brushless and be done with it! The 3906 is as close to BL ready as it gets.

You won't be getting 20min run time with 700s and NiMH.
