Battery packs Not as simple as it seemed

well i thought as i have upgraded my car a fair bit a new battery would be nice as the 2 i have are old no-makes and i have no idea how old they are??

so up pops ebay with 2 3300 ni-mh sticks 7.2v for 27 ibc postage. What a bargain but i didnt buy as i thought id ask you guys.

what should i buy?? what make mah so on.

im running a fully ballraced 19x2 TL-01 with 15 turn limit mitronics esc.

I want lots of punch for drifting and long run times, i get about 5-7 mins decent running at the moment.

any suggestions would be nice i havent got deep pockets and im in the UK so i need to get them from a UK site or shop!!

3300 GP's are still a good battery, they definitely aren't as good as the IB3800's, 4200's etc but still give out a fair bit of punch. They would be perfect for you.

And remember that Drifting tires use a plastic ring so massive amounts of juice won't do you any good. As I always recommend check out ths guide to batteries:
