Hey bud, Welcome to the race world..

Most of these guys hit the nail on the head. After 25 years of RC I will agree with in my opinion this order.

#1-Reviews and quality
2 Cost and Parts availability
3 Local sales and support
4 Cost of parts and parts compatibility.

As far as Associated and Losi goes:
Im not a big fan of either, but i also am not apposed to either.
I would have to say that In my opinion after racing them both for at least 2 seasons. The Losi is the more durable, but in my opinion its harder to race.

When it comes to lipo's-- DON'T Skimp on either the C-rating ir the Milli-amp size. I would suggests at least a 5200 50c Lipo just depends on the length of you Mains.
Rule of thumb: Always plan for 30% more race time than your race lengths are scheduled for.
So if you run 10 min mains. and it may take 5000 mah then figure 5500 or more.
I hope this helps. Please feel free to contact me with any questions and I will be glad to offer my Opinion and help. Good luck with racing and remember. This is for fun.

Thanks!

From what I understand, the higher the discharge, the faster the car can pull from the battery. Does that sound correct?

If I used a 25c 5000 battery, would that allow me to last longer vs a 50c battery? I found a couple of posts here on the forum and I believe I understand what they are trying to say.
