Default Best 11.1v lipo with more than 4000mah

I need a new lipo and was wondering with one to get. I need a 11.1v battery with over 4000mah. I was planning to spend less than $150. It will be going in a vxl slash.

I have a killer deal for you then. I have a Poly RC 3S1P 30C 4500mah pack that is basically brand new (use the best cells made by Enerland). The 30C packs came with 8AWG wire (8mm fat) and I swapped out the wire for 10AWG (6mm thick). The 8AWG wire was too thick and heavy (Pack lost 41 grams just from changing the wire. It also went from 54mm wide to 48mm wide). After I changed the wire I re-shrink-wrapped the pack and then taped up the ends with black electrical tape for further protection. I even re-applied the sticker. I ran the pack twice to test it in my 1/8th brushless MBX5R. The 1/8th scale cars really need higher voltage so I never bothered running it again as I decided to stick with 4S so the pack is basically brand new.

It currently has a pair of Castle Creations 6.5mm gold bullet connectors on it but i can change them out to Dean's Ultra Plugs if you use them instead.

Poly RC PQ-4500XQ-3S Li-Poly Battery
3S1P 11.1V 4500mAh (3 cells) 30C/60C
Rating: 30C (135.0A) continuous, 60C (270.0A) burst
Dimension: 169mm x 48mm x 25mm
Weight: 375 grams w/ Castle 6.5mm bullet connectors
Termination: 10AWG Wire w/ Castle 6.5mm connectors & PolyQuest/Hyperion balance tap

The packs sell for $126 plus shipping at RC Lipos:

The pricing on batteries has come down because I paid $169 for the pack a few months ago. But my loss is your gain. I'll sell you the pack for $100 shipped USPS Priority Mail.

Original 8AWG wires:

With the 10AWG wire and Castle 6.5mm bullet connectors:

If you don't pick up that pack then you can try True RC packs. The work very well for me, and the price is very good. I just picked up a pair of 3S 11.1V 5000mAh batteries for 80 bucks each. 180 shipped both of them to my doorstep.
