Personally I use 5200mah 2s 30c Turnigy hardcase's in my truggy with that setup at hobbyking there like $21. Been using the same 2 batteries for 9 months with no issues
If you order from there make sure you use EMS shpping or you will wait a month+ to get them. I ordered them when they were on back order and it took 2 weeks to get to my door from their stock being -400.

On 4s my truggy pops wheelies easily with them.

If you want fast run it on 4S, if you want insane run it on 6S. I have 2X3S Zippy's, similar to what traxxas4ever posted up that I run in my Flux and it has all the "punch" you can handle. I run my Revo on a single 6S and it is rediculous. I would say go with Turnigy or Zippy's and go with either 2X2S or 2X3S, depending on how fast you really want. Like the other guys said, Hobbyking has some great deals on them.

That was done with the 2200kv castle combo in my truggy (sorry the vid quality sucks I used a digital camera held in hand with my radio which was also the cause of the crack up at the end)

That was done on 4s(the ones I linked above) and honestly the wheelies were at like 30% throttle. At the gearing I never actually hit full speed seeing at around 50% throttle if I punched it to 100% it would wheelie and flip, and if I incremented it the tires would baloon up and at around 70% the front end would take off the ground and it would flip. The gearing in it at the time was the same gearing in a jammin x1 CR buggy. I've replaces the spur since with one that I think 20+ teeth more, and the wheels still baloon like mad but now the power is useable

I can't imagine this system at 6s in all truth

EDIT: Swore I hit the you tube link instead of quote oops

Dam the   ZIPPY Flightmax 5000mAh 3S1P 40C  looks soo good

Do you need to run two of them to get to the
22.2 Volts   or just the one??  at 11.1v  for the Buggy?

You'll need to run 2 of them to get the 22.2V. 11.1V per lipo.

You can always get one and then running in series after you get a second one.

My understanding was that the mamba monster had a max of 6s so if i were to get two 4s that would be 8s in total 2 more than the max.

Correct, you want either 2X2S or 2X3S for either 4S or 6S total.
