If you want just a charger (not charge/discharge) then you can't go wrong with a Pitbull. I liked it so much I bought 2!

For setups I would go with Hudy. There is a cheap metal copy made by integy but the original is still the best!!

Tools- Hudy again! Nice tools, just a bit pricey!

XXXs is not so popular in Hong Kong. There are too many 'other' cars available and it doesn't help with a distributer that ain't that good when it comes to spares!!

PS. The reason why the Novak is marginal is that I have seen this charger false peak like hell with Nimh batteries on more than one occasion!!! Of course, there are people who have had no problems......but they are probably charging from home where there is a nice stable power source!

dont over kill your car with aluminum parts....just makes the car looks nicer...but not handle better! aluminum parts doesnt return to its original shape once its bend, so your setup would be screwed if you crash too much...yes it doesnt break...but its just the same as breaking the parts if you bend them!

I don't really run stock but I do have a Tamiya type T and a Yokomo T-Maxx RSR!!

Servos- I like KO 2143 for all round performance. Although Sanwa WR is also good....don't like Futabas...but thats just me!!

Charger/Discharger- Protrak or T35BL

Batteries- Panasonic SMH- Don't like the Sanyo HVs!!!

Brushless motor- I have a Modeltech B47s...interested in picking it up SH???

DTM,
I've got a few question, I looking into a used charger now...and want to get either the Millenium Pro or the Pitbull used.

I only need a charger, why does everybody a discharger to when using nimh?

I'm right now only will charge receiver pack and some 6cells pack for my HPI Micro

How much are these two charger cost new in HK??
and used in HK??

Which one would you recommand?

I'm not charging any 1/10 batteries, so would the old Millenium be ok too?
Also, I heard there is many versions on Millenium...how many are there to be exact??

Thanks so much!

I think the Hudy setup is going for around HK$6xx and the Integy one goes for around $4xx!!

I use 4.5A for the SMH and 5.0A for HV. Theres no set rule as to what Amps to use though!
