First off, what motors are you running??

Second, you will never need more than 7.2V on a 1/24 plastic model. Anything higher and your gonna be wasting time and money on replacing motors, string, gears, and FRONT AXLES!!! :twak:

It all depends on how TOY you want the car to hop or dance... :biggrin: Me myself I don't care for a model that hops like a grasshopper or a spaceshuttle, I want realism in hopping and dancing. 6V does the job for me. For a radical dancer (bunnyhopper) I would use 7.2V and balancing the car using fishing wieghts. Real hopper and dancers also use the balancing and weight thing...that's why most of the radical dancers got rid of their engines. :biggrin:
