Default tmaxx reciver battery?

this may seem like a really stupid question, but what size reciver pack will fit in the tmaxx battery reciver box? meaning 5 cell hump pack or the the flat pack that the nitro tc3 uses?

A 5 cell hump pack should work. Just remember that you will also need to change out the on/off switch on the t-maxx since the oem unit (battery holder and switch) is all one piece. The best thing to do is find an on/off switch with a charge jack that way you can charge your receiver pack without removing it from the truck

Check out the six cell airplane battery for a firebird commander or firebird XL they fit right in, you have to change the connector over but the packs are only 11 or 12$ for a 900Mah, leave enough wire so you can have the connector on the outside of the reciever/battery compartment for charging. ( I did not have to change my on/off switch) just cut the old connector from the four cell battery holder that came with the truck and hook it up to the new one. works awesome.

I removed the Battery Box, installed a smaller Fuel Tank in it's place and used a 5 cell flat pack on the bottom of the Chassis. The Switch is Shoe-gooed to the side of the Steering Servo.

The Engine really runs much better with the new Tank. No more tuning problems from full to empty tank.


A 5 cell Hump pack should fit inside the stock Battery Box. Then just buy a Switch harness with matching plug(s) to hook it all together.

5 cell hump is the go, solder it into the switch harness & you dont need to disconnect it to recharge.
