Ok so I'm upgrading my nephews PW 2-seat F-150 for christmas. Going to go 18v for reliability and more speed. I will be buying two HPI 550 GT motors and adding heat sinks.

My question is, since his current battery is 2 years old, can I run a set-up to use the Ryobi 18v Lithium-Ion batteries. I love them and use them for my cordless drill, saw even a cordless chainsaw. I know the run-time would be alot shorter but thery sure are durable and easy to charge as opposed to charging a 12v and a 6v battery seperate with 2 different chargers.

I would just take apart a charger and mount the receiver inside the motor area so i could just clip in the battery like on a drill and go.

Ive seen this done on youtube. Just wondering if these better performing batteries would be worth it?

OK, those batteries WOULD provide the correct current.... For about five minutes.
Maybe fifteen. They're rated at 2.4 Amp Hour (AH).
The stock batteries are 9.5 AH - they would last almost four times as long.
Most of us use 12 AH batteries when we can fit them in.

And at $90, they're more expensive than two sets of 3 6v 12AH from Gruber or III

Yes very good points. Hmm got 6 of those lithium ryobi 18v batteries. Oh well I guess ill go with a reg ol SLA 12v and 6v. Seriously think the lithium barge would be faster though.

It seems like it should be much faster. Is it spinning the whole time?
