    Upgrading Teton to use Traxxas series 3, 4 and 5 NiMH batteries with the iD chargers?

    Can you easily upgrade the Teton to run on Traxxas Series 3, 4 and maybe even 5 NiMH battery packs and iD chargers? I want to be able to use NiMH battery packs with a higher mAh rating than the Series 1 1200 mAh battery (https://traxxas.com/products/parts/b...t-2/3a-1200mAh). Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!

    I am pretty shore that you can because Traxxas makes the chargers to charge both lipo batteries and nimh batteries.

    I doubt any other battery would fit, physically, other than stock series 1, and I haven't found any sizes on Nimh batteries on this site, which is annoying, as per this link https://traxxas.com/products/parts/b...id?t=batteries where no sizes listed!

    If you're creative with velcro and a "Y" parallel adapter, you can put a second 1200 mah battery in there and get roughly double the run time. (Double the weight, too, of course, and a corresponding drop in performance, but then these are 4x4 trucks, not racers...)
