Default Need advice on new Lipos

I raced 1/8 Truggy in 2010 but we lost our track so I have been running 1/5 stuff since then. Back then I ran a RC8TE 2200 MMM on Turnagy 4S with a 15T pinion. Tonight I was browsing Ebay and saw a Kyosho ST RR truggy with a Mamba 2200 for cheap so purchased it. Still no track so I plan on running taller MT tires and just using it as a park basher. Can anyone suggest some good batteries. Anyone running 5S on the 2200kv or is 4S what I should stick with? Any help would be great, thanks.

Well i guess i will try some 4S nanotechs but can someone tell me if the cold will ruin them during shipping. Our nightly lows have been 0-20 degrees.

I think they will be fine. 5s will be harder on everything, but I'm sure you already knew that. After running a Vorza on 6s, 4s felt slow lol. Get one of each, then go from there. Also, post some VIDEOS!!!

They suggest storing them cold, just warm them to basically body temp before using them. Run five cycles, gently, not going below 50%, kind of a break in process.

For bashing 5s would be good, with that 2200 4s is good too. I use 5s 1800kv in my Serpent Truggy for the track and it's perfect.
