There is one time I do experience some glitch during running the car and activate my fail safe mode. What i notice is that i have a crack on my right carbon Stiffener. I replace it, and it stop.

You might want to call Robert and ask him if he have any charger to charge that Rx pack for Serpent.

If not, go to this site to get a charger like mine, but its not necessary (or worth it) if you just only want to charge Rx pack for it.

Or go to tower hobbies for a cheaper charger.

hobico chargers. If your going to get the serpent 750 mAH, set it for 60 mAh and it will be fully charged in a little over 11 hours. Or 100 mAH for 7.5 hours. Though it's not a peak charger, it will work for RX battery packs fine. 20-30 dollar range.

29.96 and it can charge 4 batteries at once.

That all depends on what servos (digtal or non) and eletronic equiment you have on your car. Also the mah rates on your pack.

I'v raced (3 quilifers and a 15min main) all day long with one charge on my 800mah RX pack.

If you are serious into racing and you can afford it, i would suggest get a good all-in-one charger. Also good that can plug to wall and car battery charger.

Sometimes i just forgot to charge my Serpent Starter Box pack, I may also thought that i have enough juice on my Glow Igniter but it went dead on me, that i can do a quick charge at the track. Also, i would only need to keep just 1 charger for everything, instead of different charger for different pack. That is just my opinion.
