Hi guys, relative newbie here.
Looking to upgrade the stock battery in my granite blx. I don't really want to go for 3s straight away, so am thinking about ordering a 2s.
I have seen a good deal (i think) on a venom 70c 2s 5800mAh 7.4 hard case. Would this suit my car? If so would i need to change anything other than the settings on the esc? Thanks

make sure to check the dimensions of the battery if it will fit your car, I don't know if that battery can because I have a longer chassis (the fury has a 1/8 size chassis) 2s lipo is good, I will be getting one shortly as well. Just make sure to get a lipo charger (or a multi element charger to charge nimh and lipo) and get lipo bags incase of a fire. This will probably run you a bit over $100 (68.46 GBP in UK) but yeah, but then you will be all set!
[DOUBLEPOST=1463693442][/DOUBLEPOST]oh yeah, and here is where you can go to learn more about them.... @Dustin Mustangs showed this to me.

Hi thanks again for reply.

I bit the bullet, i checked on venom's website & it says its compatible. I have a imax b6ac charger which should do the job. I also ordered a LiPo bag ( both due for delivery tomorrow)

Unfortunatley i snapped the front and rear shell mounts today during a harsh landing. I have ordered a set of replacements, but am hoping i can get some stronger ones soon.

Any recommendations on stronger body mounts?

Hi
Unfortunately no, I broke my body mounts too, but I don't remember who but it may be @Dustin Mustangs that did a mod to his broken one by zip tying it to the chassis, I have done this, and will take pictures for you :)
