SMC and Trinity packs are good packs to buy.


But send Tag an email over at Express Motorsports I have 5 of his packs and they run very well, and I think they will take a lighter hit on your pocket.
There motors run very well also, here is the address

Any packs from decent matchers will be good. I have found SMC packs to be some of the best out there. Made the A at the Novak with off the shelf packs in stock foam. Numbers are good and they always run strong on the track.

Having had not much experience with batteries in the rc world, I thought that Sanyo cells had the best technology in batteries going on my field of view being an electronics technician.

Sanyo Oh yea I think they did run them back in the day Just kidding.
In RC its either IB, IP or GP right now... with IB's being the most popular at the moment.
