Hello. My first post here
I just bought the Ford Fiesta original. I have not been into RC so this is my only car. I don't have anything else than what was out of the box. I use the included charger, "Charger, A/C overnight wall, 200 mAh (7.2 volt, NiMH) ."
I charged the included "Series 1 Power Cell, 1200mAh (NiMH, 6-C flat, 7.2V, 2/3A)" battery for 6 hours. After charging, the car only ran for 6-7 minutes, which was a huge dissapointment.
Then I bought a second battery, a "Supercharge 1600 Ni-MH 7,2V" and a #3064 parallell battery connection.
I then charged both batteries using the same parallell connection (both batteries attached to charger). It then charged for 12 hours.
After this, the car still ran for 6-7 minutes before it went down to almost nothing.
What do I do wrong? Or is 6-7 minutes an OK result?
