Default what is the best 6S lipo

What is the best 6S lipo for a 1/8 onroad GTP2e RX8 2250kv. This car is for top speed runs. Should I be looking for high discharge?

Check out the ThunderPower G6 series, they should more than fit your needs.

If you are playing out in the street/parking lot or your club does not have a hard case requirement you can't go wrong with the following.

Turnigy nano-tech 5000mah 6S 45~90C Lipo Pack $95.00usd

or

Turnigy nano-tech 5000mah 4S 45~90C Lipo Pack $75.99usd

Most roar racing or club events are restricted to 4S battery power with hardcase. The most reasonable offering is from Gen Ace they will not break your bank.

Gens ace 5000MAH 14.8V 40C Lipo Battery Pack

Unlimited funds go for the Thunder Power hardcase G6 lipo.

Have had the best luck with EC5 or 5mm bullet connectors. Deans/Traxxas connectors will not stand up to the abuse if dragracing or high speed runs.
