Default Keeping Batteries In Car

I have a T.A. NTC3 Plus ad everytime i hit any form of "harsh" bump so to speak, my battery pack disconnects and ive had some bad things happen with throttle open and no battery... I was palnning on drilling hole and making a homemade harness thing but is there a better solution?

Thanks

All my nitros are offroad so I can't tell you how to keep the batteries in your car, but if you put a throttle return spring on there the motor will go to an idle next time the batt falls out. Any nitro vehicle should have a trs on it. Costs about a buck and is cheap insurance.

That is a RTR car i i bet it came with a 4 cell alkaline battery holder? IF so throw it away and get your self a rechargabel 5 cell receiver pack. I raced the NT3 back in the day and never had any battery issues as the battery is strapped into the car and should not be leaving it eve in the hardest crash..

This is what you need:


Recharge the thing without removing it from the car, youll have faster servos and much more reliable battery power since these units are welded together there is very little chance of loosing connection between cells

Thanks, Yea im defenently going to go get a recharable 4 or 5 cell battery... itll make things alot easier and every time i do crash, the battery case i have now just smashes and i have to get a new one. there like 7 bucks a piece so its quite a bit to be throwing away over a little plastic thing. thanks again for the help.
