I'm with @Kyzane I too prefer hard cases for the additional protection they offer in roll overs and crashes compared to the soft cases. Both brands recommended above would also be my recommendation.

Will that size work? I understand the concern for the soft case. I'm ordering thru tower and using easy pay feature. Wanted to buy the batteries they recommended but people told me if I used those the truck catches on fire.

those batteries will both work in the typhon, i have both a Talion and a Senton and they all share the same battery mount with the Typhon (and Kraton).

Besides being soft. 25C at 4000 mah isn't even close to enough amp draw potential for these cars.

Spoke with arrma direct. And they said 25c is the minimum rating. But recommend a higher one.

Heat, puffing=short battery life. ESC won't care for it either.

A 4000 mah pack should be about 40C minimum. I wouldn't risk that, even.

Hey, as long as you aren't doing any speed runs and just putzing around and not doing a lot of full throttle I'm sure it will be fine.
