You already have the best system/motor.
So to spend money...
Sell the 4200's and others cheap and buy a nice lipo or 2.
You'll go faster, longer, with less battery maintenance.

Keep the 4200's everyone knows lipo are slower...they have less voltage! But you will get more runtime from them.

I would have to agree with Gacjr0, you have the BEST system out there. As for the lipos, MOST people I know who run brushless have lipo. but then it gets into battery care, do you wonna cycle batteries every now and then? Do you take them down at the end of the day and put alittle bit of charge back in them for the next week? if you do that and dont mind doing it, stick with IB, EP, 4200's. if you are getting tired of doing it go lipo!.

Hope this helps,
