The traxxas plugs will be on the truck. I would go with them unless you want to change.

I'm really hoping there was a typo and those are actually 20C packs. Because if they really are 2C then you're going to get 10 amps out of them.

The stock motor/ESC setup will not work with lipo's. And if you go brushless you can't use it in the snow.

i would assume typo cuz i think i don't think LIPO's can discharge that slowly, its just not possible to do, it like trying trying to plug a deans into a tam. connecter, it just won't work
and yeah as for off-road jato's comment i LVC is all you need, well 2 accually


the lug

wrong, the stock esc can take 2 7 cell nihms and 2 2s lipos
7 cell nihm - 8.4 vlts
2s lipo- 7.4


and lug, he only needs 1 2s LVC

Most lipo's come with deans connecters so I would convert the esc to deans connecters. I converted my e-revo to deans connecters and got a much better connection.

read above ^^

i recommend going traxxas plugs, deans will void your warranty, or at least, if there is a problem, you will have to pay more for changing the plugs
I find soldering trx plugs easier

Will a 7 cell be better because it has more volts?

gotcha. If you still want waterproof then check out kershawdesigns.com they have huge brushed motors that will work with the stock esc.
