There is room to mount a 4th cell!!!! WOW
I can't believe the ESC didn't blow with the extra voltage
Are the cells you are using 250 mah NiMh cells?

Could you post a picture, please.

These cars and other like them are that hard to find in your parts of the world? We can find them every where here.

I am really not tight lipped as you said in other forum
Here is a link to the picture. It is availble for purchase. I have actually put more cells in a spec 1 before with out hurting the esc.
But, the spec one is not a slap in mod. It requires lots of work.

Photo of Spec 2 Battery

Please post info in other forum.

You weren't kidding, it was TUFF to get back together! Yes, I had an extra cell from one of my friends Spec 1 which died I am going to post step-by-step directions with pics on another site and put a link here when I am done.

It is faster!!

Thanks for the idea

P.s.

Don't forget that if you assemble pack yourself that that run times may be shortened due to soldering process. The tiny 1/3 aaa batteries hate too much heat.

AND

I am not such a great solder'er so I probably did over heat one of the cells!

It still works good for now. I haven't tried to re-charge it yet? Can you STILL use the standard Epoch charger?

Thanks again!!

Good point - do you need to double-charge or anything? Could you use a peak charger with the Epoch connector? What amp rating if so?

Batteries

Gertman,

You forgot to mention that the Spec 2 batteries could be purchased already complete, spot welded and shrink wrapped at Spec 2 batteries

They fit better and run longer than homemade packs. A little credit for the mod would be nice too. Instead of some guy in some forum.
