ok thanks, because i got the true start w/ gel cell and charged it with a real car charger maintaner thing for a couple of hours and tried the truggy and it wouldnt even turn over. so maybe i should re charge it for like 10-12 hours just to get a little charge through it, then try to start the truggy and then charge it for just hours at a time??????????? And if you have any tips on how to charge the batt that might be better let me know, thanks
