Re: ice power sourse

If you are charging rc car or truck batteries, you usually charge at a high rate. That gel cell won't last much more than 1 pack. Use your car, or if that's not possible, look into getting a deep cycle battery. (marine or RV use from Canadian Tire) They aren't cheap, but will last a day of racing, then trickle charge it at home later. Daren
If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.
