Battery for Tamiya Mini

Could someone tell me which 3300 mah battery will fit and are the best for the mini?
I am new to electric cars, as I normally run nitro.

1). GP - 7.2V 3300mAH NiMH Stick Pack ( 6 Cell) $35 US
2). Epic - VIS GP3300 NiMH Battery, 24pcs - $154
3). Gold Peak GP3300SCHR NiMH (6 cell) $70.00
4). GP 3300mah Ni-Mh battery (12 cells) $64.00
5). Sanyo 3300mah Ni-Mh battery (12 cells) $80.00
6). Panasonic Stock Ni-Mh 3000mah (12 cells) $100

How cells do I need for the Mini?
Also is it easy solder the cells to make a stick pack?

Thanks

Sami

You need 6 cells for a mini, but home building a stick pack is not easy, so I would suggest buying pre-built sticks.

Since you're limited to three gear ratios you won't be dropping in a low turn mod. Good stick packs are best for the mini even with a 19T motor. You can get them preassembled from Trinity and other distributors. Get the GP3300 if you can.
