Does this come with everything you need ? Or do you need to buy a controller ?
Asked by Katie on 27th September 2016

This comes Ready to Run with transmitter, etc. It requires a battery and charger.

How long will the battery last on this? How quick will it go? Cheers
Asked by Chris Handley on 25th February 2017

That depends what battery you choose, however we'd estimate run times of around 15-20 minuteso on a normal 3000mah battery, and around 25mins + on a high capacity 5000mah battery.

I have a LaTrax Traxxas Battery Series one 1800mah NiMh will this work since it has the same connector?
Asked by Ashton Khan on 27th February 2017

Technically it would plug in and work, but it's a small scale pack - so you may well find performance is not great.

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

How fast do these run stock/out of the box?
Asked by Ashton Khan on 7th March 2017

Around 25mph or so

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

How long does it take to charge the stock battery with the stock charge? How long does it take to charge the WheelSpin racing stick 7.2v NiMH 3300mah battery with the stock Charger?
Asked by Ashton Khan on 7th March 2017

Stock charger is a trickle charger, so will take around 6 hours for the stock battery and around 10 hours for an upgraded 3000mah battery.

If you upgrade to a fast charger, you could charge either battery in just under an hour.

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

How long does the stock battery last
Asked by Ashton Khan on 10th March 2017
Around 6-7 hours to charge. Around 10 minutes runtime, depending on your driving style. Fast chargers will charge the battery in around 1 hour, and high capacity batteries are also available.
