ic what your saying, im gonna practice for a while until i can drive the car good then ill start racing, what kinda battery pack should i get? Im gonna get a pit bull charger and gt7 so i dont think i will have to upgrade (once i get a better motor and stuff). And im pretty sure im gonna get the MX-3s so i sont deal with crystals and its price isnt THAT bad. Im prob gonna go with a digital servo (maybe that will help me) and what about the trinity P2k2? Or is that a lil much for a beginner cuz ive heard probs about the monsters.

As long as the batteries are GP 3300's they will work fine. There are a few smaller battery matchers that advertise at RC tech that have great cells. The p2k2 would work fine.

75141 - Part No. for the 39t diff.

An equalizing tray will keep your batteries in good shape. LHS = Local hobby shop. I checked your website and it looks like you have support for the pro 4 so disregard that stratment.

You can do without. But a tray will prolong battery life, thus saving you money in the long run. And as a bonus, your batteries also perform better with an equalizer.

For approx. 35$, you can get a nice one like this:



0,8 volt cut off pr. cell, 1 amp discharge rate, and control LED's, that ensure that each cell have proper contact.
