Currently I've got the Duratrax 3700. Pretty good little LiPo! Not the best, I know but not bad in my book and the price is nice.

SMC's are good. Max Amps make them specifically for your application, and Reedy Lipos have a high C rating.

Just sick with a Name brand and you should be fine.

MaxAmps 6500 hard case will be perfect in your Slash. You can even get a 3 year warranty. What other manufacture offers that? THEY ARE WATERPROOF TOO.

Zippys are alright for the money, though I think most are sold out for the time being on hobbycity.com . I'd probably go for that SMC $84.95 batt. 5200mAH, 24C is probably plenty sufficient. The warranty and customer service is invaluable. Sometimes you can find decent deals on eBay as well but stick to name brand. I'd avoid those no-name chinese brands. I purchased a cheap no-name for my Rx and it's held up nicely. But I'd be hesitant to trust them for a high-drain application.

Per the above; what do you think the average run time for bashing would be? I have a Slash with a 5700...

Thanks

I'm amazed at how much time I get, never less than 30minutes, usually around 45 before the cut-off kicks in. I'm sure someone on here would have a better idea of run times with your setup than me.
