Question about my Tyco RC
« on: September 24, 2010, 22:39:27 »
Hello I am new to these forums and I recently got a Tyco RC Tantrum off ebay and I was looking to maybe buy a better battery for it. What batterys work with the Tantrum car? Is a Flexpack compatible with my car? What about the TMH Flexpack?

Thanks for any feedback

i'm pretty sure it is your standard 6v pack you are stuck with.

So is my only option to maybe get a New or newer 6v battery that will hold a charge better?
