    traxxas Nimh question

    I have been looking at the 1/16 cars and I see that they come with a series one 6 cell battery.
    These look smaller in dimensions to the other 6 cell packs, my question is will any 6 cell pack fit in the 1/16 cars (looking for more MAH).

    Higher mah shouldn't make a difference. I think the battery hold-downs are reversible to allow for fatter cells, even in 1/16 cars.

    The battery box is not all that big:


    There are no hold downs for the 1/6ths... and altering the box to accept a larger battery is quite an undertaking.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    I think the highest NiMh is 1800mAh... 2500mAh for 2S LiPo.
