Easy RC Car Controller Mod



In this Instructable I will walk you through the process of converting a Traxxas TQ radio transmitter to run on a rechargeable battery pack. This can save you hundreds of dollars! If you race consistently in any competitions or you just like to have fun at home you know it costs money to buy batteries for the remotes. Often, it is the vehicle that needs its power source replenished, but this remote is very high range and runs the batteries down pretty quick. In strenuous studies,(counting the batteries) I came to find that the remote runs on the same voltage as a replacement battery pack, 9.6v or eight batteries. The goal is simple, Stop Paying For Batteries! All you would have to do once the transfusion is complete is charge the battery pack and plug it in!
