Default Losi Gen III radio tray

Hey guys,

I have the Gen III radio tray with a Losi 2000 mah Lipo pack. Can you charge this battery while still in the car? I bought a switch that has a charge lead on it, but being that it has a regulator I heard that charging it while in the car is a bad idea. Can someone help me out? Is there a way to charge it in the car?

you "can" charge it in the car. however, it is not recommended with lipo because of the risk of fire. would be bad to burn up the entire car just to save 1 minute!
