Default Time to upgrade my batteries.

Hey guys i currently run a poweredge 50c,thunderpower 40c,and gens ace 40c in my xray t3 and my team associated b4.1 and feel i need to upgrade my batteries.My buddy just bought a trinity 6200mah 60c battery and his cars is very fast with that battery,so i was more or less wondering what batteries do you guys run and recomend?money really isnt an issue so im open to different batteries.I feel that the batteries are holding my laptimes back because my fastest lap is a 9.8 which is really fast at that track but i feel i can go faster.

Try Speedzone batteries. You will be very happy!
The price and performance can't be matched. IMO

Not the same as the Trinity battery you are describing, but yes it is distributed by Trinity/Epic. I can let you try mine out at FIRCC if you are going to be there this Sunday. You will notice a lot of guys there are running this battery there as well.
