I use team orion 2400 mah rocket packs. They aren't pro level or anything, but they work well. I'll have my run time posted later. What I like about these batteries is the cost. They are about $17 at my lhs. While they aren't as good as other nicds for power or nimh's for runtime, but I think that the price makes up for this. Think about it: For sixty bucks you can get 1 good nimh or three rocket packs (as well as maybe some new brushes or other things). 1 nimh=3000mah. 3 rocket packs= 7200 mah. They may not be the best for power, but for the cost, they can't be beat.smojoe said:JB-
What kind of batteries do you use? im lookin for somethin for a longer run time, and thought i could get some pointers from you.
Depends on how badly stripped they are. If they are still "snug" , but just keep turning when bottomed out, then put some low or medium hold Loc-Tite thread locker on the threads, and this time just barely snug them up - this goes for all screws going into plastic, just snug them up lightly till they are in all the way, and no more.La.

Also what type of plastic is the chassis made of. Thanx
Make sure the plastic nut (part 22 in the attached pic) has the ears turned the right way, other wise the nut won't go on as far.La. Dano said:I got another problem now though, I cleaned the diff and the spring and nut will not go in the left side outdrive deep enough for the axle to go in all the way. Also is it supposed to fell gritty? Just doesn't feel right.
