Default Lipo cutoff for rustler

I am planning on picking up some 4000 mAh lipo's for my traxxas rustler model 3705 (couple years old). What is a good cutoff for this car? The track i drive at is not competative, few people use lipo's, and the majority of the drivers are under twelve. I just wanted to see the difference between the two.

Also, I have a Onyx 240 peak charger which doesn't work for lipos? Different way to charge nimhs and lipos, so what is a good charger for lipos with or without balance?
