Most RTR (ready-to-run) nitro-powered vehicles come with a standard 4-cell “AA” alkaline battery pack holder which is used to power your receiver and servos. You can add a level of security to your ride by making sure those “AA”s don’t pop out of the holder. This is especially true with an off-road vehicle that has to endure a lot of hard impacts.
All you need to do is to wrap the battery pack holder with some electrical tape and this will keep the “AA”s from moving. Just a couple times around the pack with the tape is all you need.
When you get some extra funds together, consider getting a rechargeable NiMH receiver battery pack like the one shown here from Dynamite. For around $27, you can enjoy increased runtimes with your nitro-powered vehicle due to its high capacity (mAh), especially if you own a high-current-drain car or truck. These packs are available in the 3+2 cell configuration shown here or in a 5-cell flat pack.Last edited by Paul Onorato; Jun 28, 2013 at 06:20 PM..
