on the pin connector problem you can go to your lhs as they should sell pin conversions either for your charger or for the battery. I know that the Hobbytown that I work at that we have Common Sense conversion packs the eflite thunder power and so on. I would recomend taking your battery and charger with you to the hobby store and figure out what coversion lead you need.

I don't where you bought your batt. or charger but this why it is good to support your local hobby store. For the most part they are there to help with these things.

The big Ofna chrome top box can't use a Lipo due to the amount of amps that the motor draws. But you can use the Lipo's inthe new Ofna truggy box with dual 750 motors, the Mugen starter box and other similar boxes that use two stick packs. I have the Mugen box and HT500 Lipo and it is the BOMB! It'l last all weekend starting 2-3 cars. On the balance plug, you just need to get the correct balance adapter. Check out MaxAmps website for picks of all the different types of adapters. Amainhobbies also has a starter box Lipo and different balance adapters. If you call their 1-800 customer service number, and tell them what charger and balancer you have they will hook you up with their battery and correct adapter (if you need one).

Best regards,
