For those wanting to switch to lipos that fit on their budget.
I bought 2 of each of this:
3 cell:

2 cell:

They are really really tight fit. You need to mod where the wires come out of the battery box.
So far they are great! Lot's of power in them specially the 3 cells rhinos.

Charger for these lipos is also cheap.
You can get it from Nitro RCX.
Just search for "charger" and you will find a $55 dollar one.

I've been running (2) Thunder Power 2100mah 2cell lipos ($40 each) both parallel and series. I charge them with the Onyx 230. It cost around $70 but I use a blinky balancer with it. These batteries make the slash scream. I don't have the nerve to put my gps in it, but I wan't to clock it some how.

I just bought a 1/16 revo with a mambe 5700 and mamba max. It came with 2 3s 1550 20c Rhino packs and I thought it was going to be killer so I charged them up and let it rip only to find out the batteries were junk and I could barely keep up with my RC18MT. I looked around and ordered 2 of these http://hobbycity.com/hobbycity/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=9609&Product_Name=Rhino_1850mAh_3S_11.1v_40C_Lipoly_Pack

They fit with a little pushing and the same door mod as the others and let me tell you, at 40c discharge the truck is 100% uncontrollable. Going wide open at 60mph on a gun results in violent backflips and complete carnage, exactly what I was looking for! SO, after a new rear diff, aluminum hub carriers and bearings, 100w shock oil and using one battery its still almost undrivable haha. I use a JR XS3 and my EPA'a are cranked way down to try and let the thing last more then one packs worth or running. I clocked it at 68mph with one pack and it still has more in it, I just ran out of space!

If you are looking for insane speed and crazy punch, give these a shot!
