What are you going to put it in? If you upgrade w/VXL go Lipo; something like 3s 5000 for insane speed.

You can run a vxl on quality NiMh cells - Traxxas includes a 7 cell NiMh with the Slash Ultimate which is brushless vxl.

If you don't have good cells, it won't run very fast or very long. Rather than spend money on more NiMh, spend the money on lipo and a lipo capable charger.

The VXL ESC is a very tolerant unit, I have one that is 2 yrs old, looks shocking, has been through god knows what but it still runs perfectly fine.
