    What LiPo Battery for Slash 4X4

    I'm looking to get 2 or 3 LiPo battery packs for my brushless Slash 4X4. I'd prefer 3S packs with lots of run time (high mAh). Anybody have any suggestions on which packs would work best, come with Traxxas connectors, and would fit the Slash? Thanks!

    these are great if you want a 2cell, run time is really good and they have a lot of power. they dont come with traxxas connectors but you could always just solder one on

    RE: What LiPo Battery for Slash 4X4

    i have winforce 3s 30c 3300mah lipos. the runtime isnt huge, 15-20 minutes in my VXL. but i bought 2 for just $50 shipped! thats pretty dang cheap. you can find them on ebay. they dont come with any battery connector, so you will have to sodder on the traxxas connector.

    i have also seen a few lipos on ebay, that some guy makes himself. it was like a 3s 50c 5000mah lipo for $65. i dont know if i would buy from him myself, but its a pretty good deal if its the real thing. that lipo would give you 1/2 hour or more runtime easy.

    Does this fit in the Slash 4X4 without modification?

    which one?For the SPC 3s 8000mah, you'll need the battery extension kit I believe, but that's really cheap.
