Default Apex Touring V-Type RTR + Batteries Help Needed

I decided to make a video, i would really appreciate it if you guys took out time to check out my issues with the car and batteries.

For people who would dont want to watch the video, I am would like to know how to change modes in this RC car. Such as changing the mode so I am able to reverse.

My other issues are batteries, I would like to know how to charge them IF! I am charging them wrong.



PLease replace DOT with .<--

My post count was not sufficient enough to post links.

First off. At the end of your video when you unplug the lipo from your charger if the plugs touched your lipo would go up in flames instantly. So be more careful. It is also highly recommend and a requirement at large race meets to charge your lipo in a lipo charging sack.
The issue with your charger is its not getting enough amps to charge the batteries. Your power adaptor is supplying .7 of an amp and your asking the charger to charge at 2.5 and 4 amps.
So you need a better power supply first off and then see how your car goes.
