Seems an ok price to me mate. It will be coming with a FM radio though. Not bad if you just want to run by yourself but can cause issues if you want to go to a club or with a mate. Battery wise i'd suggest a minimum of a 3000mAh battery. I was using 2x 3300's with mine and i'd get about 15mins out of each battery. Charger wise, i use a 12v delta peak charger, which took about 50mins to charge each battery. The LHS told me that the 240v version they were selling would take around 2hrs for a 2000mah battery, so if you go that way expect long charge times.

Well NiMH batteries for cars are all 7.2v and most that you will get online and hobby shops in aus will have the tamiya connector on them. The only real factor is the mAh rating. The bigger the number, the longer they will last for. So buy the biggest number you can afford.

The only thing to consider when buying them is if you do what i did and buy a good charger and a couple of batteries only to turn around a few months later and buy a whole different set up (ie LIPO) then you would have wasted a bit of money.

Brand wise, team orion and lrp a kinda brand names, but for the car your grabbing its not going to matter if all the cells are hand picked to work with each other and blah blah blah because your not yet running that in comps and stuff.

Nothing really, just stick some drift wheels on there. These are just plastic wheels so they have no grip, vs the rubber ones designed for grip racing.

Some people lock the rear diff, this means that both the rear wheels spin at the same speed no matter what. A normal diff can spin the wheels at different speeds for better handing going around corners.

I leave my setup the same other then the wheels because i still want to do grip racing and i dont own two cars... yet..
