nimh for bandit
so i was looking around at lipo batteries, and then i thought i would look at the nimh batteries on towerhobbies.com. the nimh are more affordable for me right now. i have the stock battery that came with my bandit vxl, the 7 cell hump. i dont wanna modify my car to hold a battery, i wanna keep it stock.so i think the biggest it can hold is an 8 cell hump pack (correct me if im wrong) any suggestions on the biggest battery with the most power to give my bandit vxlmore power and speed??

RE: nimh for bandit
The VXL system can handle a 10.8V NiMH or 9 cells. Hopefully someone will chime in that can verify which 8 or 9 cell will fit properly.

RE: nimh for bandit
you can buy a 2s-5000mah-30c lipo off ebay for $30 shipped. that will be about as fast as any 7-8cell nimh pack.
and you can buy lipo chargers for under $50 shipped now.
if you know where to buy, the cost isnt any more than nimh, but the performance is better.
i have bought lipos off ebay, and off hobbyking.com. both were better than ANY nimh packs i have ever used.
once you go lipo, you dont go back[8D]

RE: nimh for bandit
You can use 8-9 cell Nimh packs if you want to stay with Nimh for now. Just the matter of finding what pack config will fit the Bandit. I believe the hump back will fit. Maxamps, and cheapbatterypacks or similar vendors even had specific packs made for the Traxxas 2wd stuff, if you want to google around, you may still find those.
