Well, if you've ever held a 12v battery, you'll know why people use NiMH and LiPo packs.

Yeh at the time 12v was cheaper and more powerful for turning over my stubborn buggy motors. now I jus cant be bothered investing in stick packs and a charger when I still have my all mighty 12v LOL so I purchased some new leads for my new mugen box. (cant wait till it comes)

I know what you mean. The 12V Battery is way cheaper than buying two stick packs. But the box whights a ton with it. So, there is a trade off of whight to cost.
