Default Lipo Batteries and brushless info

Ive been out of the rc world for the last couple years!! A while back i built a losi XXXT that i love but it is a brush motor set up and i would like to convert it over to brushless. Ive been looking at the Castle Creations Monster Mamba Pro 5700kv Combo. Ive Read these are good and was curious what people think about the setup?? Also the new Lipo Battery stuff confuses me a little Im reading that the motor uses a 3s Lipo MAX but the ESC can use up to 6s so i figured i could only use a 3s Lipo Battery but then i go and do more research and come across 3s2p ect ect.. Would this be the same as a 6s or could i use a 3s2p and get a longer run time?? Ive also read about apogee Limn.. Whats this all about?? Im pretty lost and confused

The Mamba Max Pro is made to use with 1/10 vehicles can use up to a 3s lipos.

The Mamba Monster is made to use with 1/8 vehicles and can use up to a 6s lipos.

If you are going to stick with 3S then a mamba max will do. They are on sale at castle. Pretty much ignore any "p" numbers on packs. Apogee is out of business I think.

the mamba max pro can handle 6s lipo, its only the motor that cant, so if you wanted to you could hook up a 6s worthy motor to it and run it on 6s.

"c" means capacity and the number is a multiplier. Multiplied together it equals the current in the description.
