    My AMB 260 won’t hold a charge anymore. I understand that it doesn’t make sense to repair them financially vs just getting another one. However, are these truly repairable? What about self-repair?

    Worth a try and costs very little.

    Todd, Yes you can replace the batteries. That youtube link is a pretty good overview on how to replace the battery. I’ve replaced my old style tx batteries. There are 3 batteries on the old style tx. Mine has been working fine for the past 3 years.

    Anyone used Acetone to get the foam out vs. carving out in the video?

    Go to this thread on Badger Kart Club. I have some information on there.


    There is also a thread on the ekarting classic form. Search my name on there if you can.

    If you need more help just let me know.
