« on: August 17, 2011, 17:31:09 »
A new in box yellow mini hopper,,i felt like a damn kid all over again i was the first to pop the tape on the sides i wasn't going to take it out,,,,but i just had to test it out (just in the kitchen) worked just like a new tyco even with that new tyco smell lol,i see a red mini every once in a while but no yellow so i just had to share with you guys i haven't seen a yellow one since like 88-89 anyway here's the pics

talk about modern battery ive been thinking about getting a tyco mini if i can get a really cheap 1 to try 2 of these init would just have to rewire the battery box a bit these are li ion and are AA size but have 3.6v power per batttery so 2 would be 7.2v be worth a try i think

go for it man. i ran 14.4v  7400mah through a speedo that was only rated to 9.6v for about 2 years before it blew its self to bits but that was powering a tamiya bullhead with two cordless drill motors up and down a river lol.
