Default Lipo battery for Electric Muggy

What would be a good Lipo battery for an electric Muggy? 5 or 6 cells? Where is a reputable place to buy them on line?

look at a 4 cell or two 2 cells. smc makes imo one of the best lipos out and their c-max 40c 4 cell is comming out soon and their 2 cell is out. thats the way i would go. go to smc thread and ask danny he's always happy to help.
also there is a thread in here on the batt just search smc 40c 4cell lipo

It all depends.
- what speed are you looking for?
- which motor and esc are you going to use?

A good starting point is 5s5000mah 30c lipo's or 6s4500 30c lipo's. But it will depend on gearing and motor and esc used. I wouldn't lower than 5s.
