Re: leaf spring Q:

hilift leafs are .27" wide.

my leafs are modded with traxxas ball ends but they measure about 4.6" long at about mid-flex. (measured on rig)

Re: where to buy?

i've got 4 or 5 lipos and a couple tx packs from maxamps.com. pretty dang good place imo.

the new a123 batterys look killer. i read they perform like a lipo but can be treated like a nicad and only take 15 minutes to recharge.
