Is this what you're talking about?




So there is no 9.6, just 4 AA's in the truck and 2 AA's in the "power boost engine", so when you add the "power boost engine" it is 50% more batteries? For a total of 9 volts?

Or does the "power boost engine" have 6 AA's added to the normal 9.6 battery pack? For a total of 18.6 volts, assuming you add 6 regular 1.5 volt alkaline AA cells to the "power boost engine".
 ??? :-\

That is what I'm looking for, is only 4 aa's then two in the power boost engine. It doesn't compare to the bandit. But if you find one I'd buy it, I have those same pictures on my super fast traxx box, I'd like another of them too haha.

I've got an outlaw i'm restoring at the moment - I'm also upgrading to run front suspension from a mini aero hopper (one of the big downsides of the outlaw was the lack of front suspension) As for performance they're ok but not lightning quick - depends what you compare it to - It will do killer wheelies with the engine on the back although that is more down to the weight rather than the extra power.

I'll let you know if I'm going to sell it
