Default Associated Reedy Wolfpack LiPos

Posted this in a different section, haven't got a reply yet so posting here.
Looking for an extra 2S LiPo for my F1 & Tower Hobbies has this for $55 right now.
TH description:
Crash resistant molded hard plastic case
ROAR approved
Suitable for sport or competition usage
4mm female bullet connectors for positive (+) and negative (-)
terminals
2mm terminal for balancing
5000mAH, 7.4V (2S), 25C
Link: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXBYUJ&P=7

The 4mm bullets are perfect for my car setup right now. My charger is capable of balancing LiPos.
Not looking for something super expensive, just a good quality pack at a decent price.
Any good?? Opinions?? If you have other options you want to share, please feel free.

I've got two of them. They are exactly as advertised. They are relatively low C ratings, so as long as you aren't needing more C to satifsy a power hungry motor you should be fine.

Thanks for the input.
Can only run the silver can j-johnson motors in my club's f1 class.
This is what the battery will be powering, the 3 Racing F109.

They'd be fine for you in that situation. We have a couple of them, and run them in our VTA cars without issue. Along the lines of what the previous poster mentioned... for a slower class they're absolutely okay.

Some of the best for VTA, and I do not think you will have any issues with a silver can. A lot of F1 drivers are using shorty packs though so they can adjust weight bias. Might be something to keep in mind.
