Duratrax Onyx 4000mah 2S Lipo
You’ll need to add a battery to get the M10DB into action. We went Lipo with a 4000mah Duratrax pack, which is hardcased for durability and inexpensive at under $30. One hitch: Duratrax doesn’t offer the pack with an XT60 connector as required by the M10DB, but since Carisma includes an extra pair of XT60 plugs with the car, we were able to convert the pack without an extra trip to the hobby store.
If you prefer short-course styling, Carisma offers the M10SC. It’s built on the same platform as the M10DB and has the same electronics, wrapped up with an Sc-flavored body, wheel, and tire combo.
The M10DB’S 2.4GHZ radio system is no-frills, but it does include adjustable steering rate and works just fine. Carisma includes four AAS to power it up.
