Default looking for long run time battery for a Losi 22

I'm looking to get into competitive racing and need a battery for my 22, would like a battery that i can move around. So far in doing my research i haven't been able to find a battery that quite fits the bill.

You really don't want a super long runtime pack as it increases weight. You might want a shorty pack since you want to move it around a bit. Look into SMC racing packs. Excellent value for money.

This is more of what your looking for and will have plenty of runtime. Pick the connector of your choice.

If you want some of the best batteries check out maxamps, they make some packs that run up to 22000mah. Im sure you'd be sick of driving before that pack ran out of juice.

I hate to say it but max amps are wayyyyy overpriced and not any better than smc or any of the other major brands.
