Hello Nerf Haven,
I have done all the basic mods to my strife (taken out electronic/mechanical locks and rewired) as well as replaced the stock motors with the Solarbotic's RM2s (This was a while ago, I realize now that it was a possible waste of money.)
I am now looking to buy the standard ultrafires/trustfires to up the voltage. I'm in Canada, so because of weird rules/lack of website support/Canadian import taxes that I'm definitely not an expert on, I (think) I need to order them from ebay.ca or amazon.ca. I have tried ordering a couple before but long story short I didn't receive them. There is also a lot of fake ultrafires that are being sold.

I came to ask my fellow Canadian's if they could give me a link(s) in order to buy 6 ultrafires/trustfires with a charger, and a dummy battery.

I would prefer for these to be tested sellers so I don't get scammed again. The number of batteries the charger supports doesn't concern me, I just need the correct batteries (size/voltage/capacity) in order to run in my stock AA battery tray.
Your help is very much appreciated.
Thanks, eh?

Also in Canada. If you're going with batteries get IMRs. Best place I found was ebay, especially for dummies. Get Efest. More money, worth it.

RM2's????????????????????????

Don't even touch those. Any voltage higher than 6 will burn them out in a month or so. on 3s trustfires, you'll go a week or so.

Efest is good but some people cant afford them. Trustfires are dirt cheap. I woudn't reccoment them but you asked for trustfires. Here the link but make sure you buy 3 pairs.


Trustfires (2 pack): http://www.dx.com/p/...71#.VPHZwLPF-m0
Charger: http://www.dx.com/p/...51#.VPO-srPF-m0
Dummy (2 pack): http://www.dx.com/p/...67#.VPTVbbPF-m0

Alright, thanks for the help guys. I don't want to come across as lazy, I just want to make sure I get the right batteries (size, shape, output, etc) and that all the charger work with them. As I said before, I am very uneducated in this subject.
So what I'm hearing is efest IMR's are signifigantly better for nerfing? Sounds alright to me. I'll have to figure it out in terms of pricing, but if they are really that much I better I might just get them. In that case,
were would I grab those? (Preferable a place in stock) Also, what charger? And if you are really nice, can you buy the dummy's from the same place?

And regarding burning out my motors, it isn't a concern, as it will be a excuse to upgrade if they do burn out.
