    hmm where to start. Useing AA's are ok but it is slow! Upgrade to battery packs. The suspenshion is crap so if you cant get ahold of the teamlosi shocks,or another manufactures shockstake large zip ties and put them on the shockbodys(pull the spring down first). ask some questions about amini tand if not me someone elese will answer them.

    pimp-you cant buy a quality mini car from walmart!

    Justin-packs start from 20 bucks up to 50 bucks. I charger is about 40-45 bucks, it all depends. Battery packs give the mini t more power, and about the same amount of run time as aa's. When I first got my home made battery packs, I put them into the car and it flew. I will never go back to AA's

    for chargeing, it depends. Team Losi sells a charger that can charge therepacks in about 2hours, but they also released a quick charger, I dont know off hand how longit takes fore that 1

    If I get one, I will definitely get some battery packs.

    the minit is a great little stadium truck and it is very durable and jumps well. It is by far the best 1/18 out there and has a very well designed 3 speed transmision. As mentioned above the first upgrade would be the battery pack. the next shocks/oil filled alloy shocks make a big difference gmp makes good ones that are cheap, the next would be a hop up motor. you can trick these things out in full alloy and even install brushless motors..... they are very fast. the batt pack makes a huge difference. have fun they rock!
