Default 4s Lipo's in 1/8

What 4s batteries do you run in your 1/8 conversion's?
I'm looking to get a second pack to back up a maxamp 6500.

Thanks

I am running the Thunder Power 4S 30C 5000mah in my 8ight buggy with a Mamba Monster 2200kv combo. I don't know when they are coming out or if they are already out, but Thunder Power got a 45C Li-Po coming out capable of charging at 6C.

Here is a link to the packs:

They're also coming out with 6500mAh if you need more.

MaxAmps = waste of a lot of money.. way overpriced.

Turnigy = awesome power, awesome price.

Friends don't let friends buy MaxAmp$.

Tooks the words right out my mouth. Max Amps is WAYYYYYY overpriced, and do not outperform the "overseas" batteries. IMO Max amps is like he said, a waste of A LOT of money.

I run the Thunder Power 4S 5400mah 25C Sport Pack. Great battery. I personally don't trust these economy (Zippy) soft packs.

I run Hyprerion V3 4s 5000mah. Best lipo's out right now for a good price. The Turnigy pack are a good deal too.

The Turnigy packs are good, I had 1. But cant fit in my Ve8 so I went with Hyperion for it and it is a nice pack and the price is good also and the G3 they say they last up to 4 times longer than regular lipo. My next pack will probably be the Promatch 5100 40C hardcase. $100 cheaper than every other 40C hard case pack out there.

I'm running a Team Losi hardcase 4s in my recent eConversion. It's a bit on the bulky side, but it seems to run very very well so far. Only 2 races under it's belt...and 0 issues.
