Question 4


What are the batteries called that power the radio system (in the car) and how much do they cost?

I think my problem is the battery (or the fail safe)

They are called receiver batteries...Typically you want a 5 cell hump pack 6v with at least 1400mA. This is the configuration you want:


you can find really good packs for less than $30

If I'm bashing I really only clean/lube anything after every 3 or 4 bash sessions

If I'm racing, then i do a tear down and clean/lube after the finish of the race day.

With both:
I remove all bearings and clean n lube em.
Pull the arms, clean the hinge pins, and clean the hinge pin holders.
Pull the clutch bell and check the shoes and the clutch bearings
Take apart the engine and give it a once over to check for worn parts.
If I'm in the mood, I use this time to modify my diff oil setup and/or shock oil setup.


But then thats just me......
