better battery

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I just bought my first RC and I went with the Traxxis Rustler. I was curious to know if anybody could suggest a better battery for longer run times?

Thank you.

Re: better battery

Even better look at the 2s 6000mah nanotech batteries from Hobbyking.

But if you have some money to really blow look at this:

Re: better battery

Those 6000mah nanotechs probably won't fit in the battery channel without some modifications.

The 4000mah 2s hardcases should fit easily, and the 30c or less 5000mah hardcase packs should fit as well. If in doubt, compare the measurements of the pack to the dimensions of the battery channel.
