Hmm.. You must mean Transmitter. I've never seen a reciever that used 8 batteries. ( most would fry with 7.2v )
I have Energizer 1850mah AA's in my M8, and they are good for a whole race day without recharging. Yes, you do lose a little voltage when changing from 1.5 alkilines to 1.2nimh, but just as long as you keep on top of charging them between race days at low amps ( .5 - .7a ) you should be fine.
