Default My kids X-mas train...

This thing is cool from Home Depot, but runs on 6 C batteries for maybe 2-3 hours max....

So I made a 7 cell battery pack out of some old 6 cell 1500mah packs I had laying around and flushed it inside the bottom of the battery car, and put a deans connector inside as well....

Currently charging .....hope it works

"Yes my car is technically illegal, but still its either just as fast or slower than any other car on the track so whats the issue with it being illegal?"

I used to have a 00 gauge train set when I was little... it was so funny to see the little trains bombing round the track.

I learned very young that you should not put your tongue on the toy train tracks. That might explain how I had a white boy fro until 8 years old.

I remember my friend had a train that went around his christmas tree in a rounded off square.

It was fun to fill a car full of marble and watch the train haul ass into the turn resulting in an extravaganza consisting of a huge pileup and scattered marbles everwhere.

'twas good fun indeed.

My buddy is really into trains. They are pretty cool around the tree.

I would always have the train fly off the tracks, like slot cars!

Good times!
