    for the mamba if u wana have a truck that you pretty much can't keep the wheels down get the Comp X and a 3 cell Thunder pack and a
    Dynamite Vision Peak Ultra charger which can charge lipo's and Nimh and Nicd. U can find them for about 90 bucks off of ebay. The pack is about 50 bucks which is a good deal. 3 cell 1320 mah Lipo. If you buy most other lipo chargers u need a power supply, with the Vision Peak Ultra u don't. I have been useing it for awhile now and no problems what so ever.

    Charger on ebay:


    The lipo I have is TP1320-3SJ and I love the run time and power. It takes about an hour to charge if the pack is all the way down to about 9.6 volts. With the charger u can change the amps. I charge the batt at 1.35 amps and does not get hot at all. IF you go this route make sure every time u charge a lipo it is on the lipo charge setting, if for some reason u don't change it or foreget it can/will catch on fire or explode
