    Those of you all that have been in this hobby for a while will probably remember them or have some of their products. They are back up and running.

  3. I used to have a wicked old tekin speed control and that thing would never die! I beat the crap outta it and it kept on ticking. Tekin is definitly a great brand!

    alot of the expensive stuff you dont need for what ever you want to do.if anyone needs the expensive stuff they would really know what they are doing.

    I guess thats why you still use 1500's and a timer charger with your Traxxas Rustler and AM radio (far as the eye can see!?)

    it would be nice to have a charger that can charge a 16 cell pack but i dont need it.it would be nice to have an FM radio.but i dont need it.i dont have a problem with my AM at all.
    and i charge all my cells in seperate packs.so to buy all that expensive stuff you should really know what you are doing because you may not need it.

    To all concerned, my last post was just to timrock.
    I used 1500scr's for many years, 6 yrs to be exact, untill they just were too tired to run any more, man I miss those cells, best ever, anyway, I also used a timer charger for a long time. I knew what I was doing, just couldn't afford a $250.00 charger. Tim just states crap that gets me going, and I argue with him (mostly just for fun to see what stupid thing he will say next). So I apoligise to all (except tim) and will keep it down.

    you miss those cells?if you knew what you were doing as you said,you would still have them.

    what you need to do,after running the battery down is: before sticking it on the charger right after,use a discharger and monitor it with a Volt Meter and bring the Voltage down to 7.2 for a 6 cell pack.

    if you dont do this.your cells will develope `memory`.that was your problem.you call it `the bateries got too tired`.

    i have old 1200s that are still good from over 10 years ago.because i knew what i was doing.i dont use them often because they are not quality cells and have little runtime.

    i use 2000mAh Sanyo
