I got my 7.2v 1600mah battery pack ($20 shipped) from Blind Batteries and it fits perfectly in the stock area of the DRR (with the stock AAA compartment removed). I attached a picture of it. I haven't gotten a chance to hook it up yet since I got it just before work. I also got my aluminium body mounts which were not what I expected at all. I can't wait to get out of work to piece all of this together! I still need to finish up my 1970 428 Boss Mustang model body and get a Micro Modified RS4 motor... oh yeah and some foam tires.

It's the first battery listed.

I'm also running some of Kevin's brick cells in my DRR. They work well, and last a long time. The only downside is a 6cell pack is heavier than a 2/3AA 6 cell pack. No big thing.

Don't charge them at more than 1amp.

I got the pack charged up and hooked it up... man oh man my DRR flies! I recomend Blind Batteries to anyone looking to upgrade to 7.2v battery packs. You can't beat it! $20 for a 1600mah pack that fits perfectly! Now I can't wait to get a Micro Mod. RS4 45turn Motor. It'll probably be like a bolt of lightning! Oh well they weight a little bit heavy but that just means you'll get a little bit better grip (I think....). The extra power, long run times, and a faster than stock motor way than more make up for the heavier weight. Anyway I need some foam tires now, I ordered some ABC SP Front and Rear foam tires so hopefully I'll get them soon.

P.S. Thanks for the charging tip :D

I'm gonna get some of these to try in my Mini-X!

Binaryterror, just FYI, the bricks are too long to fit in the stock battery compartments in the mini-x. Maybe if you remove the forward end of the compartments they could be made to fit -- but it'd be ugly.

No matter i am building a totally new chassis for my Mini-X

It is going to be made out of flouro BLUE PETG sheet, unless someone can help me find some carbon fiber sheet. I like the idea of these brick batteries alot.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Really makes me feel good knowing that my batteries actually do what I have noticed them to do, for other people! :D

If that 6 cell pack doubles to speed of a micro rs4, I can only imagine on something the size of a mini-z!
