just make sure you get batterys that will fit. many of today's square case lipos don't fit in the HPI F1 chassis. A few brands do fit, but most don't. So it's important to pick batterys that will fit unless you don't mind modifying the chassis with something like the exotec conversion. A $70 mod to a $90 car does seem a little extreme. So you'll want to be sure that your batterys will fit.

Nope, only tried the Orions. Mine are the 4000mah 25C 2S Rocket Packs.

This Lipo will fit only the Exotec Conversion.

You can only use round Lipos like the orion or the new lrps.

Get the Bridgestone Potenza tires in the S compound. The kit tires are useless.

But dont forget the orange parts are not included with the exotec chassis conversion.
The other parts are original hpi hop ups.
