Question
Battery or Car

I have noticed that battery prices have been cut in half and I want to buy two batteries but I also want another car but the car is much more expensive and i would have to save my money
Should I save my money for another car or buy two more batteries since they are so cheap.

well i'd say get batteries from: www.hobbycity.com or: www.hobbypartz.com check hobbycity first, you can get a nice, high mah lipo for 20 dollars, so that way you can get your batteries and save for a car.

they have a charger there to which can charge lipo's and nimh batteries for about $30, and a power supply for $10. for the price of the three of those batteries you could probably get the charger and at least 3lipo's. probably more.

I agree with everyone else, for the price of just about any Nimh packs I have ever seen you can get everything from Hobbycity to use lipo and get much better performance with less maintenance.

Trust me when I tell you its like getting a new car all over again!

One thing to keep in mind when getting a charger check the max output of the charger. The big battery packs can take forever to get a full charge.

You may want to take a look at lifepo4 batteries if you are not comfortable with lipo.
