Default Which lipo?

I've converted my ofna buggy to brushless with a MMM 2200. Which one of these lipo packs should I buy?

I am looking for at least 15 minutes of run time and to be able to keep up with the nitro buggies at the local track.

They are all Zippy's and they are all good batts. The first 2 have different battery plugs than the last one which has a Dean connector. Will that help you make a decision. If that doesn't matter then go with the higher C rating.

I run the Zippy-H 4s 5000mah and get 17-22 min. of run time out of my 8ight
The 5s 4000 should be about the same
good luck

Is there an issue with cutting off the plug connectors and soldering on deans?
