I have heard good things of lrp. The only problem is I can only find one supplier, rcmart.

Turnigy Hardcase 5000 Lipo
They are cheap and work great.

If size and Weight is an issue, Orions Carbon 3600 3800 etc etc are great.
I charge one while i go race with the other take about 30-40 mins charging at 3.6 or 3.8 amps.

I use a Fantom 3200 mAh 40c and it rocks! Lots of punch and plenty of run time with a 17.5. It's ROAR approved and comes with Deans connectors. The only down side is that the balancing plug is somewhat special, but they supply a free adapter.

Reedy 5000mah 35C. This is the best battery I have ever used.

Hey guys, i saw something in Thunderpower site, they will release soon the latest 5200 50C.
Maybe we should wait until it arrives at market, shouldn't we?

Best regards & Merry X'mas.

50C 5200 would be perfect for those applications that need 250Amps of power.

Something else to consider. The LRP has bumps on the bottom to fit into chassis slots. But, I am running an xray with lipo weights that shift the battery to the right which will not allow those bumps to fit into the chassis slots.

On the T2 '009 you can't get the bumps on the LRP LiPos to fit unfortunately. It just needs to be a few milimeters more outwards to fit...
But the good thing about the LRP batteries, is that you can just flip it, so you dont have those bumps. There is battery-connectors on the other side as well.

The bumps should fit in the Xray T3 though.

Also consider what will actually fit in the car.
Some carbon chassis cars have a few issues here.. my XRAY T2
Look at the height of the batt, it may need to fit under the top deck.
Also where do the wires exit the batt case?? Will this be an issue will top decks, batt straps etc

http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s...idProduct=8357
this one wires come out of the corner, so it wont fit my car as it has to sit slightly under the top deck, the wire exit is were the top deck is. The lumps on the bottom means I cant move it out sightly. The lumps would be good in a tub chassis.
*some of the better batts have the plugs for cables recessed

http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s...idProduct=9435
Again, not a good choice in my car. The cables have to go to the outside of the chassis
