4S 5000mAH LIPO. Once you go LIPO you will never look back. Runs forever and turns over super tight mills without hesitation. Hard to beat HobbyKing on price.

I use a 4s LiFe (13.2v) 4200mAh in my starter, it has the same internals as the Q-World/OFNA blue starter box with the 2x 750 motors, it works pretty well & lasts ok to although I would like to get a higher capacity.
When I first started to run my engine in it had a little problem but the engine was super tight & a LiPo wouldn't have made a difference, heating the engine helped though.
Good thing with the LiFe pack is that I don't really have to worry about over discharging like you do with a LiPo, & the LiFe packs are a lot safer.

Do you know what's the volts on the battery? A link would be a very great help.

Sorry about late reply, this is the one I use, just a cheaper HobbyKing Zippy pack ut it seems to work well, I wouldn't mind something with higher mAh rating though.

I see it has & U.S.A flag there so should be available from U.S warehouse.
