SMC by Danny Sullivan.

The same batteries Paul Lemieux uses and many others. Danny does a awesome job and has been doing this a long time. He was the orginal owner of Pole Position. He was the man. Canwest R/C is the Canadian dist. You can contact them and ask where to buy them. You won't be disappointed.

eXpress Motorsports!

Honestly most battery company's are very good at what they do. Personally I think eXpress has some of the best. Ever since switching to their cells my cars they have had more punch and runtime then any other cells I've run.

I don't want to turn this into a pissing match between all companies but this was just my PERSONAL opinion.
