A cooler running motor equates to faster speeds, longer runtime, and extended motor life.

MODEL 24054-1: Fully assembled, waterproof, Ready-To-Race, with TQ™ 2.4GHz radio system, XL-5 Electronic Speed Control, 8.4V NiMH 3000mAh Power Cell™ battery, 4-amp DC Peak Detecting Fast Charger, and ProGraphix painted body.
NOTE: This car does 35mph when you fit the optional 31 tooth pinion gear, which is included in the pack. As standard it does around 28mph so that it's a little slower whilst you familiarise yourself with the car. Note: No RC car doing more than 20mph will survive a crash into a solid object like a kerb without damage. This product is absolutely not suitable for under 14s.
TRAXXAS READY TO RUN BATTERY AND CHARGER OPTIONS
This car comes with a 3000mah 8.4v Battery and a DC Fast Charger. The DC Charger has a "cigar lighter" style plug and can be used in almost every car in the UK. We optionally offer (in addition to the items in the box) the following items which you can add:
Extra Batteries - an extra 3000mah 8.4v Battery. These are available in both "Hump" and "Flat" styles. Both styles fit this car. The hump battery has more concentrated weight, the stick style spreads it over a wider area - it's purely personal preference which you use. Note that Traxxas cars use a heavy duty battery plug which isn't the standard "Tamiya" or "Deans-style" fitting used by other brands. Mains Power Supply - this is a 40 watt mains power supply with a UK plug. The unit allows you to use the included 12v charger in the house, whilst maintaining the high charge current for fast charging.
