So i have a XS 16 volt battery and XS charger. This is the 3rd season on them both. 1st race of this yr my charger popped and had a small flame and smoked badly. I bought a new charger and have been fine every week until this past weekend. Went to start the car sat morning before time trials and it cranked slowly and stopped. Battery is completely dead. It will not charge at all. So the battery is junk now as well. So does XS stuff just not last? Both charger and battery needed replaced after only 2 seasons of racing. Have to buy a battery this week so should i look into another brand? Had several racers tell me Saturday that XS batteries are junk and to buy a different one.
