    I'm thinking about getting a SCX10 Honcho but I don't know what type of battery to run. Does anybody have any suggestions?

    It all depends I don't run any lipos in my dingo just a 5000mah nmhd and I can get about 2 hour run if crawling or if I'm hiking with it I can get around a mile before it gets too low on power with a 27t wraith motor.

    If you switch to a 2-cell, 5000mAh LiPo battery, you'll get substantially longer run times, and a definite gain in power. But if you do, you might want to replace the Tamiya type connectors on both battery and ESC to a high voltage type of connector, like a Traxxas or Deans type of connector. The stock connectors have been known to "melt" when higher powered electronics are used. I'd go to a Traxxas connector, because they're easier to handle if your fingers are cold and wet...
