Default Best LiPo for Traxxas Bandit VXL

What is the best LiPo 11.1V for the Traxxas Bandit VXL?
Which LiPo fits in the Bandit VXL, last longer and it is capable to achieve speed 70MPH+ ?

Traxxas Customer Service answered that "The dimensions of the battery compartment are L 136.5mm W 44.45mm H 25.4mm. With the addition of the expansion kit the height is increased to 35.5mm. I do not have a list of batteries that fit." But I'm not comfortable with these numbers. Can any one confirm?

Thanks,

The traxxas site says 70MPH at LiPo 11.1V 8000MAH and I can't find any batt that fit in those dimensions. The traxxas said that they don't have any batt list.

[hr]Hello,

It will not fit. The dimensions of the battery compartment are L 136.5mm W 44.45mm H 25.4mm With the addition of the expansion kit the height is increased to 35.5mm.

I do not have a list of batteries that fit.

Best regards,
Steve Lindholm,
Traxxas Customer Service

You dont need 8000mah...

Go to hobby king and look at pack dimensions untill you find one that fits.
