Need some help identifying and part finding...

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!

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.
