Default Redcat Volcano Epx Pro

I'm new to RC and looking to see what is the max Lipo I can use on a Redcat Volcano Epx Pro and is there a way to use more than one Lipo at a time?Thanks.

i use a 2s 30c 5000mah soft pack in my volcano epx pro. works great. awsome power and really good runtimes. also, the pack i bought was only $30 new.

right on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/RC-Car-Lipo-Batt...item230b6f54c8
these packs ship from hong kong, so it takes about 2 weeks. and you have to put on your own battery plug. but the price is hard to beat.
the only place you may find a better deal is at www.hobbyking.com. that have lipos as simillar prices.

Thanks alot... I was trying to post a new question but it was giving me problems... For some reason, the car doesn't wanna turn now... I think my son was messing around with the three buttons on the top of the controller but i tried to see if i can get it to work and for some reason the car wont turn left or right and there isn't much on the redcat site or in the papers that came with it... Any suggestions?

the nob on the right(if holding the remote in left hand and looking at it) is the steering rate. if you son played with that nob he may have turned the steering rate all the way down. turn it back up and see if you have steering.

Soft packs will leak over time when used in land vehicles. When they leak the fluid will destroy anything it comes into contact with.
