2 Nimh + 2 alkaline

I was wondering, since i havent bought rechargable batterys for my new mini-z ive been using alkaline. And i just ran out. I have to wait like 3 days to get the rechargable. But here at home i only have 2 Nimh 720mah batteries. Would it be ok to mich those too with used alkalines. Or is it harmfull for the car ?

I don't really recommend that cuz in some batteries, if u mix them they will leak. And trust me that happened, but not with my mini-z.. I'm pretty sure the other forum members here won't highly recommend mixing batteries either.

yes wedge is right. It wont do harm to the car but it will kill the batteri. not sure if it will leak but it will shorten it's life fast

If you dont mind going at low speed, then ive heard that you can use two AAA sized screws in the battery compartment and it will work. However, ive never tried this and wouldn't until somebody who has says something. It seems like it would work, but i just don't know.

the screws would be exposed. chances of frying is very high
