I have batteries

If you're looking for batteries for an original ZipZap or a Bit Char-g, I'm selling a dual-cell mod kit on eBay. The kit includes 2 cat 5 wires, two 150mAh NimH batteries and full colour instructions on how to do the mod. As a bonus extra cat 5 wire to do an antenna mod.

I have plenty of these batteries and could throw in another battery for a tri-cell mod easily.

I'm in Canada too so shipping would be cheap. Let me know if you're interested.

See http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...ESSE%3AIT&rd=1 for more info.

Or, PM me and you can just buy them from me.

J

Spamman- If you can't find the button cells, think about trying the quad cell. If you've seen any of ph2t's 3.6 volt ZZ pics, you'll notice you can fit 3 regular sized cells in the chassis, then wire one more on top. The speed and torque ends up to be similar to a lipoly'd car (I have both and have raced them many times).

I haven't had the chance to do a layman's tri mod since I can't find the batts either. But I'm sure it's no faster than a lipoly since it's the same voltage and no way can be lighter than a lithium battery.

You'll also yield way more runtime. The button cells were 40mah which sounds like about 3 minutes runtime. A 150mah or 200mah set of cells would last about 15 - 20 minutes. At least my quad with 200 mah set does.

well, i just don't want to have to flip the pcb (like doing a dual or tri cell mod), mainly because my newly painted and body kitted s2000 body won't fit with the pcb flipped.
