Anything less than 5000mAh is pushing it. The more the better. Especially if you get caught with only a few e-truggies and have to run with the nitro guys. I use the 6950mAh Trinity Formula X batteries and have no issues.

looks like the IP versions I have seen.

I had the 7200mah 5mm plug setup ones from my SCT and did the male to male plug to put them together to make a 4S 7200mah pack for my truggy.

Picked up a 7600mah 4S pack to use now, but I would say a 6500mah pack would be a good way to go.

Most of the guys running the Tekno Truggies use somewhere around the 6500 range, so i'm assuming you have a serpent because of the 2s setup you picked up?

That is a heavy truck, you'll push those 6000s, keep an eye on those packs during your first few outings.
As long as you dont run 10 minute races each time you take them out they should be ok, but try not to run them dead each time you take them out on the track.

Thanks all. I ended up buying 4 6000mah 90c Turnigy Nano-Tech Ultimate packs. 2 for my buggy and 2 for the truggy.

I know the buggy will be fine, fingers crossed they hold up for the truggy too.

Just to clear any confusion i may have caused, my tekno truggy is 9lbs 2ounces with a hard case 6500 battery ready to hit the track.
From my discussions with a Serpent representative, that is only a few ounces lighter than that persons setup for their serpent truggy, so your own results depend on your track ready truggy weight.

Get $85 SMC 6500 4s Race or cheaper Factory Spec one and never worry about batteries again.
