Default Starter Box Battery Help!!!

I just ordered one 14 Volt Lipo Battery for my Mugen starter box, How do I wire the starter box for one 14v battery? I use to run two 7.2 volt battery packs. Please Help!

You currently have a Y harness that has a plug that runs from the starter box and runs to both batteries in series. To run a single battery You run the lipo directly to the connection for the starter box (no Y harness needed).

I hope this makes sense.

Pass you soon

.instead of having two 7.2 volt batteries wired in series....14.4volts...(positive of one battery to negative of second battery)
....you are getting rid of the extra wiring and more or less plugging the battery directly to the motor.........with the switch somewhere in the loop to start/stop the flow of current to the motor......

Hey T, I did this to my starter box earlier this season. All your doing is getting rid of the jumper between the 2 connectors, while your at is you should put a Dean's male connnector in place of the Tamiya connectors that the box has. All you will be using is the red and black wire that are wired thru the box.

Peace,
Kelly
