Thanks a ton for the quick reply!For those motors you're looking at a 4s, 1300 - 1500 mah, 80c or better. Some good options here:
Don't wast money on over-priced batteries. These are the best lipos for FPV at any price point. And of course you need a charger to go with them.www.fpvknowitall.com
What you want to avoid is getting a huge battery thinking it will help your flight time, the extra weight makes it zero-sum gain. Lower C rated batteries are cheaper, and may look appealing, but they're not going to work well for you. These big boys are for trucks, so steer clear of these:

While it is true that Vanover is a great racer, don't underestimate yourself, I bet you will be screaming around the course in short order with a little practice! My money is on you to take this competition, and it is all about the fun of flying @TeamGaruda!You straight up showed me a drl racer vid. How am i supposed to even compare my lap time with it.
One day I'll fly lines like that... One day
It is good to know what the hardware is capable of, that way you know as an engineer that you're overshooting your performance marks. What all this points out is that you can potentially save a lot of weight in craft, battery and motor because as a pilot you aren't experienced enough to channel this much thrust efficiently. Of course it all hinges on how much you have to pick up between every lap.You straight up showed me a drl racer vid. How am i supposed to even compare my lap time with it.
