Exclamation Newbie here, needs help please.

alright, I'm new to this stuff and I'm planning to get either a savage flux 2350 or the flux hp.
What is the difference?, which one is better?
what is the highest level battery can these things take? whats the recommendations?
and whats the standard battery connector type for both the flux and 2350?
last, what is the recommended charger for it?

The Flux HP is better I'd say. It uses a 2200kv motor as compared to the 2350kv in the other. You can use up to 6S on the Flux HP and then the 2350 only allows up to 4S I believe. I don't know the standard connectors of the two. I recommend deans or Traxxas however. As for a charger and batteries, I recommend www.hobbyking.com. Lots of cheap chargers and batteries. You would need to run dual batteries in a Savage. Either 2 (2S 7.4) or 2 (3S 11.1) packs.

i forgot one more thing,
I've just realised that the batteries have some kind of rating,
(e.g 20C, 25C, etc) does this matter?
and does the battery need a minimum of 5000mAh?

I recommend the higher c rating I personly only buy 40c ,which means they can discharge a lot better ( more punch when u nail the throttle) with out dropping to much voltage i think for the savage u will want a min of 3000mah,cause the weight of the truck and the size and power of those motors can suck batteries pretty dry Very quick , hope this helps...
