Buy the best packs you can afford

Decent 40c packs are available everywhere

Try the Gensace from Hobbypartz.com, highly reccomended

If you are set on purchasing from Hobbyking get the Turnigy 40c packs, they are a better quality than the Zippy's

Cheers

The only problem I have with the Traxxas batteries (okay, two problems, they're expensive) is the C rating. The minimum C rating to make a happy MMM is 25C. I'd rather get a 30c or 40c and have some more headspace.
