This is my charge jack setup. I got the components from Dick Smiths
(aka woolworths ) and the components cost me less than 5 dollars. All
that was needed was some drilling and soldering.









here it is while charging









Here is the elec. diagram I have also included a jr male female power
connector between the battery and the switch so I can change packs if I
need to. I left the wires from the charge jack to the switch long
enough to remove the lid but if you wanted to you could use another jr
power connector to make the lid removable.







Wiring the switch this way eliminates the chance of you charger voltage
going straight to the RX. So , like I said it cost less
than 5 dollars to do this mod, the switch is already supplied by HPI,
so is the JR power connector ! Any questions, dont hesitate to ask.

Hi Odum,


That's a nice mod there. When I get a rechargable pack for my Savage I'll be installing something similar. I don't suppose you could put up some pictures of your throttle/brake linkage modification as well?


Thanks,


Jerrah.

jerrah,



the throttle mod is the same as everyone elses, i think ausrc has done
it to his truck ... just trying not to post pics that have already been
posted ..... also for good throttle mod images have a look at hirisk's
savage for sale in the for sale section !



You could get you battery pack from MRC, he has venom 1200 's nimh for
under 30 dollars !!! wish I knew that before I paid 32 for my 1100 !!
