Do you want to run 8 or run only 4 shocks like the Flux is setup with? Check the length (compare) and if the same they will prob work. Flux is heavier, so they will prob need stiffer springs and maybe heavier oil. If you want to run just 4 of them they def will need heavier springs and oil.

The Neuenergy lipos in 2S are what I've been running - 25C 5000mah. I just ordered the 3S 5000 myself. This is going to be unreal, the 4S if pretty awesome as it is!!

Thanks for the heads up. Just got a pair of 3s 5000mah packs for my Truggy project. I was going to go with Flightmax but these are the same price.

Hope you scored some batts in this deal - apparently Diversity is no longer going to sell Neus - something about the contract between Castle and Neu - I guess Castle has some kind of exclusive rights?? Anyway, Diversity was selling off their Neu stuff at what I'm guessing was cost. Prices were unreal. Mine shipped yesterday.

Diversity is bringing in PolyQuest and PolyRC, Enerland's lipos.
