I have orderd the Thunder Power 5000mah 40C ROAR Legal lipos. I've also been told the lipos with deans have a lower internal resistance and are therefor better for Stock classes

I went with the Thunder Power batts for my 17.5 car. I have a lot of heli/airplane experience with TP batts and some really good results. After all, helis run at 85-90% power constantly so I figure that if their 'soft' batteries are great, their 'hard' batts should be great for cars.
