SMC - they are the best you can buy. Danny has the best product out there. They're not the cheapest, but their numbers don't lie.

The 28c is great, I assume the 40c will be just this side of ridiculous.

the best lipo will be one which fits your budget and has ample capacity/runtime and C rating for your chosen motor and use of vehicle....

I'm liking the SMC stuff right now. I know Thunder Power has some good stuff, but I don't know anyone running one personally. At the level most of us are at, they're all good. Pick the one that looks the sexiest on your car or has good "numbers" so that you have a chance bench racing.
