Default 1/8 E Buggy Lipo Question

Just got a Losi 8ight E 2.0 with the xcelorin esc\1700 combo. I'm wondering which battery is the best value for this vehicle? Thanks

I run these two batteries in mine.

great bang for the buck and they've been great batteries for me. I also charge at 2c rate, so I don't have to wait too long between charges.

With that kv motor it might be better to run a 5 cell lipo. With lower kv motors you are able to run higher voltage, possible longer run time, less heat, and it's more efficient.

Default Lipo

I have a brand new Turnigy 5S 3600Mah lipo pack for the Losi 8ight-E. I sold the buggy and no longer need a 5S pack. Theyre 60 plus at HobbyKing. I'm asking 50 shipped if you're interested.
