Default 8.4 Volts with HL electrics

Well i hooked up the HL S&S electrics in my 1/24 abrams and it seems to work just as cool as it did on 7.2 volts looks like the boards can handel the extra cell...... I let the 7 aa batteries sit for like 15 min after full charge so the voltage drops off I did not want to risk peak voltage that may be to high and do some damage .....then i used them and it worked out fine.

Hi just a note my abrams was like 4 years old and used alot... the motors did not run the same and i could not trim it out with the HL radio...and i threw my spring out that i took out of it's gear box.... So i had to use a piece of silicone fuel line and go crazy taking it in and out until i finnaly found the right size i needed now it works....So hope you kept your spring!!

Probably most likely just that it was so old and used but i did not want to order a new one for $18.00 plus shipping from toyeast!

Also i relocated the sound vol controle i drilled a big hole in the last AA holder and mounted it flush in the top.

Now do the same test with a 9.6V battery pack to see if HL S&S electronics can handle it without smoking

Have any of you ever tried going the other way? an entire vstank electronics set up in a hl so you could do ir battles with the 1/16 tanks? I myself want to try this very badly. I figure the motors & gear box from the hl are the only things you need to keep right?

Hi It wont work because there is no throttle trim on VS tanks in there gear box they have a slipper clutch that makes both motors go the same RPM so the tanks drive straight.

hi richard. i have, my T34 runs with heng long smoke and sound electrics,everything including the smoke unit(modified)works well, and i use the 9.6v battery pack that came with the tank, i decided to use this because of the space needed for the smoke unit, see pictures, i can say, i have had no problems at all,with electrics burning out, i may even use a 9.6v battery in my tiger, i gave it a quick try, and the tiger run fantastic, it did burn the smoke unit out after 20min's of running about terrorising the dogs.will try it out properly in the tiger after i have put some motors with 3 times the torque output in
