Default Starter box question

Hi guys, I'm getting into Nitro and needing a starter/bump box. What voltage do these things run on? I think I saw somewhere you can put a 4S pack in them. I have several 2S turnigy packs left over from electric stuff. Can I run 2 of them in series in the box??

Thanks, Jeff

Most are made to run between 12 and 15 volts....I bet some might run more.

Depends on the box you choose...I run the chrome top with a 12 volt gel cell, its about the size of motorcycle bat. Alot will fit 2 six cell nickel packs...

It really depends on the box. I run a 4s li-po in my losi boxes with no problem. Anyway, 4s in most boxes should be fine.

you can also hook the bump box up to a car battery or something so you dont have to buy lipos.
