Default Cheap But Good Lipos?

My Zippy lipos for my plane have worked really good over the years and they are cheap. I'm hoping I can find cheap but good lipos for onroad racing and I found this...

Turnigy nano-tech 5300mah 2S2P 50~100C Hardcase

What are others using for racing onroad 1/10 Touring Cars?

PS I bought my Sakura Zero S today from my LHS for $102.00!!!!!!! They price matched it but said they'd only do it this once! Very cool! So I'm pulling the trigger on the rest of the items I'll need and hope to get some good advice on a cheap but good lipo.

Those would be fine for putting together a budget car. You could also look into Gens Ace batteries. My brother and I run them in our VTA cars and they're great value for what you pay.

http://www.speedzoneusa.com/estore/i...roducts_id=337 These are also on sale right now. Speedzone lipos are very good batteries. ROAR approved as well.

Turnigy Nano Tech 'A Spec'. Good power & doesn't puff. I charge mine at 12amps and they are my race packs.

Thanks for the feedback on the Turnigy lipos I'm considering and the Gens Ace and GForce! I really appreciate it!

last year i ran that $33 nano tech along with an$140 orion pack in my race car

they were withing afew grams weight, i couldnt tell the diffrence in performance and the orion puffed bad at the end of the season, orion denied my warrenty claim

moral of the story, when buying lipos you dont get what you pay for

thats made me a cheep lipo user for life
