I think you need to take a picture of the plug and post it.

From the link it looks like the car runs on 12v, 10x1.2v nicad or nimh AA batteries. Not sure about the plug though. A 11.1v lipo would work great in this application assuming it would fit in the battery slot. Otherwise, you can just build a battery from 10 AA rechargeable batteries.

Go to cheapbatterypacks.com and order them in the attached configuration.

what electrical layout? They all have to be in series in order to get 12v from 10 batteries. If your guy doesn't know how to do that then I'd suggest you not use him. As I said, I have no idea what the third wire could possibly be for, if you look at the picture of the charger you can see that it only has two wires (+ and -). Where does the third wire on the plug in the car go to?
