View Full Version : Need some help identifying and part finding...

2013.05.21, 11:33 AM
So I am pretty new to the MiniZ cars, and came across this setup and it was the same price as a used standard MR02 ready set, so I picked it up.

I need some help figuring out what brand this would be and where I can find a charger for the 4 batteries, they are 1.25v 780 mAh Ni-MH batteries. I do see that the motor and the batteries are PM racing, but I am not sure about the rest of the set up.
I need a charger for the batteries, would it be just a standard 6v charger as long as it has the same plug end?


now for the pics:





Thanks in advance for any help you guys provide me.

Hate to tell you this :( but I would bet those cells are dead or nearly dead. I don't think PN has sold those cells in the last 5 years. What you need is a NiMh charger that can charge 4 cells in series. You may have to cycle them a few times before you'll know if there is any life left in them. Good luck!

thanks for the info. may seem like you gave me bad news, but honestly, its not the end of the world. I should be able to find replacement batteries and a charger.

All batteries die anyway :) So just get a new set.

Those modified rigs are much more fun than the stock - you can even upgrade your Rx and Tx to FM or 2.4G. :D
