I just bought a new Stampede 2X4 with the 8.4v NiMH battery. I charged it with the charger that came with it till the light turned green. Which was about 8 hours! It didn't seem to last that long. Maybe 45 minutes of off and on road use. Is that normal? What would be a good battery and charger replacement? Thanks for the input.
That is normal. Try an onyx 235 charger. Or a triton eq.
For batteries I recommend spc batteries. I like the 6500mah 65c 2s lipos.
Whatever you are, be a good one.
