You will need a balancer, such as the Astro Blinky balancer, and for AC charging, everyone recommends the Onyx 230, which I might be getting. Basically set to charge at 1C (mah/1000), and keep an eye on it. Plug the balancer into the battery as you charge, and you are pretty much set.

Since the truck's not out yet any guesses would be mere speculation.
Without specific questions about motor and battery combos you're considering it's hard to say.
You might want to try reading some of the threads on lipo and brushless.

i figured that was going to be the response, i should have said 2s 35c 5000mah lipo powering a 13.5t brushless. i know that the truck is not out, so in a slash what would this do?

The way the proposed rules for the SCT (trucks class with Slash and SC10) class read you the motor required is a 17.5 brushless or 27t stock motor. With this you caqn use a 2S 7.4V LiPo battery.This speed is more than enough for these trucks with the standard tires and typical tracks.

If you are not racing, a 13.5 would be very fast. i have used this as well but the slower speed of the 17.5 results in faster lap times on my local track.

I have been running the SC10 with the LRP 17.5 and 5000 20C battery. After a 5-minute race and upon recharging the battery, I add between 700mAh and 1100mAH. Without stopping, I could get probably get 15 minutes comfortably and likley up to 20 minutes.

I can't give an idea of truck speed as in a racing environment your speed is your lap time. Actual MPH does not matter.

There is a good AC/DC charger by Dynamite that plugs right in and charges LiPos. I would recommend this, and an LRP Sphere ESC with an LRP 17.5 stock spec motor. You will probably get many suggestions about other motors and ESCs but a sensored type like the LRP (or others) gives the best throttle feel and drivability so at least stick with the sensored type.
