Default Batteries

What is a good, non expensive, 3000mah battery?
I currently have team orion 3000mah super duty batteries, are those good?

Dont even bother with 3000s cells anymore.
If you can charge them then you can charge 3300s.

3300s are cheaper then 3000s and if you just want cheap play backs buy some stick packs from any major brand out there> SMC has a great deal on there emaxx packs sold in pairs.

I couldn't find any 3300 that cost less than 3000. I was looking at these, are they good http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXERB5&P=7

Will you be racing or bashing with the packs? If your bashing then just get some cheap packs, but if your racing you can get decient matched packs from $35, which is a steal.

Default Finding Good Battery Packs.

Guys;

After a year of fustration looking for decent battery packs, I believe that ordering from a Battery Matcher is the only way to get good packs. Online Hobby Shops like Tower, do not seem to have the best avalible. Even at your Local Shop, it's hard to come by really good packs.

Ive never ordered from a matcher,as a matter of fact never even knew of it, but I really like smc. THey are the best that have tried so far and sisnce i dont have a constant flow of cash I cant risk $60 on something that im not sure about. I used to have one pro match 3300 ,wich I dislike now, and I borrowed an smc 3300 pack(the gold and green) from my friend for the main and I was hooked. I also have some 2400's and being that I race in the rookie class i am still competitive with them but I dont use the in the mains.

I've been running 2400's ever since I started racing a few months ago. As long as your racing stock they'll be just fine. Lotsa punch too.
