still using the 9.6v??

make sure the battery is completely drained, and completely cooled before you recharge it. i charge mine in my minifridge, and keep them in there when they are done. batteries hate heat.

also what kind of charger are you using?? 24 min?? the slower the better, mine is 4-5 hours. get a few batteries, few chargers, keep em cool, and you will have fun until you get sick of it, not the car dying on you
