The first thing you should do even before posting on here is contact the manufacture directly!

contact AE, they may not even know this themselves, i'm sure they will correct this issue fast. especially if they are labeled as NIMH and NICADS are inside. could cause problems when racers are using the wrong charging methods. possibly a recall issue like one of their chargers

any problems i had with parts from kits, were dealt with quickly and at no expense to me.

David, 35 bucks for it. Ive sent team associated an e-mail explaining what happend, hopefully they will get back to me pretty quick. You know its not like 35 bucks is gonna break me or anything, Im really not that worried about the deal, but people should be aware when that kinda stuff happens.

Default AE

The quickest way to get ahold of AE is call. If you e-mail it could take days!
