Default 8.4v 3000mAh Ni-Mh charging

I just bought a 1/10 drift star from exceed-rc and I got an 8.4v 3000mAh Ni-Mh battery with it and I was wonderring how much time I should charge it the first time I use it and for the other time I use it. I would charge it with the stock charger.
thank you.

ok stock charger i believe takes 8 hours to fully charge. also when driving it make sure to drive it until the wheels can barely turn while holding it off the ground. but ONLY do this with nimh batteries never lipo batteries. also if you want to charge it faster here is a setup

lastly everyone will tell you get a lipo they are better which they are but i tried a lipo when i first started and ended up messing it up and wasting $30

Default Custom Kydex Bumpers (CNC Milled)

For those interested in significantly increasing the durability of their Exceed DriftKing, I'm selling custom Kydex bumpers for $15 shipped within the US, they span 180mm wide and will fit just inside most popular 190mm bodies on the market. The foam bumper is not included, just shown for reference:

Default I have 2

My wife and I both have an exceed model. I bought her the brushed spatha sct.broke pretty quick.but the himoto tanto is the same. So ordered aluminum parts from asiatees. Took care of it. Myself I have a emadbeast.I have destroyed 2 bodies but haven't broke anything else. Oh and the sct is not sized like say a slash. Closer to stampede in length but wider than a pede. I'd buy the madbeast again in a heartbeat.
