Well i have planes that run lipo batteries.can i run these in cars?

Yes and no - Although they will work, surface batteries have a hard case to protect the batteries from all the bumps and bashing

Joseph C.
OK - I will show you a few - Losi is a great brand to look at

With this, you would just need battery and charger in addition!
