lipo 7,4 V 250/300 mAh but, careful, you must invert the polarity of the ESC cause the wires are inserted in the female plug in the opposite way. Just unmount the plug and invert the wires

Thank you ....that really helps to know on the reverse of the polarity. Greatly appreciated.

I found this battery that I believe will work:
http://www.atomicmods.com/Products/T...ry__13659.aspx.

Measurements according to the company are: 34mm x 20.5mm x 10.2mm - That should fit..although smaller somewhat.

Now to find some of those interesting type plugs that are on the stock battery. The one from the company above look different.

I got some new batteries and the polarity was ok.

Just check it before you connect up to the bike.

Wonderful...Based on your info, I'm ordering them from http://www.rctoys.com/. Size and everything works.
By the way I added some lead in the legs of the rider based on these threads...and wow..what difference that made in handling.

Great darkwinds Yah, the lead works very well. I filled up, arms, legs, something in the body and helmet. Much better, specially increasing the power to 7,4 V.

So, adding the weight to the rider helps it turn better?

Ran mine in standard trim with the lipo at weekend and it was a little reluctant to turn.
They do get a good speed increase with the lipo's though.

Hi All, I was wondering if anyone tried converting the rider servo motion to a direct steering servo? Just thinking, lol. DAVE

On the standard battery, around house was not too bad.
But took it out with me a weekend and let it rip, with the lipo it motors...
And is harder to turn.

Will try adding some weight.
Thanks,
Drew

I'm going to try adding lead in the arms and head this weekend with the upgraded LIPO...will see how it does.
One issue with the lead I put in the legs is in braking. The slightest touch of the brakes and I'm doing an endo..even at the low setting on the controller.
