I would love to frequent my LHS, but they are more geared toward nitro than electric. If you HAD to purchase online, where would you recommend?

For NiMh cells, I usually bought from ProMatch racing, unless Team Brood, EA Motorsports had a sale going on. Best "Name" brand lipo I found is Stormer hobbies, Orion 3200 20C carbon pack for $66. I have 6 of these packs and love them. If money is no object the higher Mah lipo's, such as Trakpower, SMC are gonna set you back $120-$130.

Im sure they can order them for you! They probably only carry nitro b/c none of the electric guys shop there. Its the chicken and the egg scenario. Plus nitro trucks probably outsell electric touring cars 50 to 1.

Nexusracing.net carries a variety of Lipos at some of the lowest prices. Plus their customer service is top notch

I have the latest line of SMC Lipos in stock at bottom line prices. But check your local hobby shop first....

Don't you think I have? I live in Sunny San Diego, were everything is expensive. Looking for an online dealer.

But thanks for the suggestion about my LHS, I would have never thought to do that.
