Default Good battery set-up for Super Clodbuster??

I Have an evx-2 ESC, TQ 2.4 radio and receiver with a 2075 servo. I am going to start with the stock motors and am looking for good all around power and run time. Can someone please recommend something?? I've heard anything from 2 7 cell NmAh to 2 Lipo's to 1 Lipo. Any help would be great. Thanks

Personally, wouldn't run much more than a 7 cell nimh or lipo of equivalent voltage with the stock motors. I too have seen the stock ones handle 14.4v, but they were made to run on 7.2-8.4v. Running on twice the power will definitely shorten the life of the motors. If you want to run a high voltage setup, get something like these.

I have heard that these will work with about 14.4v as well.

I run a Venom 5000mah 30C Hard Case Lipo in my Super Clod and my Juggernaut 2 with a Low voltage alarm system, and I have yet to hit the low voltage before I put the truck away for the evening (My son and I play with the trucks.)
