    Yes there is an adapter for the Lipo battery. Brand name your paying for the R&D,advertising all that bs.Buy the knocloffs and their probably just as good.Might even be made in the same factory,Just with a genric label. Do a lil research and tell us what you find.

    2cell 5MaH Turnigy LiPo's. they are cheap or should i say inexpensive. I have had good luck with them. Just make sure you get the car(hard case) packs. Also learn to solder, because the ends will all be different. If you choose to run traxxas connectors on them you can get female ends at LHS (local hobbie shop) watch you tube video and your a pro. Just a side note make sure you get a smart balancing charger and a LiPo sack if you don't flames are inevitable! Get the batteries that are hard wired not the ones with removable leads (nothing but problems).

    Not only do I have a Bag for Lipos while in charge, I also have a fire extingusher just for electronic fires.....Its cheap compared to rebuilding a home. Just some food for thought.
    You could say I'm an ADDiCT!
