Default help ofna starter box wire

hey all just got a ofna 1/8th and 1/10th narrow box and it put it all together and the wiring included only would allow the use of a 12v batt. so i wanted , to use 2 stick packs so i made a y type connector and im it woont turn my truck over .i can unplug one batt and the motor runs at the same speed, so i think its not getting the 14vs just the 7.2 v of power . ive been reading that they need to be wired in series? wwhat does that mean and how do i do that thanks.

Hey bud,

That pic is of a parallel connector. Those connector will increase the mah (adding them) of the pack, but do not increase the voltage.

A series connector will add the voltages of the cells together, which will increase power to the motor(s). This is what you want...

Here is a linky to read --> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Series_...allel_circuits

jenson40's link above my post is the correct one...

Hope that helps!

The best thing to do is to mod a deans toyour starter box and use a 14 volt lipo battery!
