Default New electric Earthquake

Ok, the box is open and I'm impressed so far. Now lets look for directions.....OK found them....directions very short and not to the point. I'm new to this, and I need to know how to get this "bad boy" charged up, and any other info that will update the very vague directions to get this machine on the road. I do thank you all in advance for your help.

OKay here goes...........

1- get the charger, a small box shaped device, plug it into the wall
2- take your lipo battery, plug the little white plug into the side of the charger where the white plug goes
3- plug the battery cable, into the cable on the charger.
4- wait 3 hours or so and repeat this for the second battery.
5- go bashing

(note: while charging, the lights on the charger will be red, then turn orange then finally green. green means fully charged)

I hate to ask this, but, after turning the radio on, are you turning the truck on?

You know, I never thought to ask him that. My earthquake was already bound when I got it.
