4aa charger for a tricell?

I have a layman's tricell and a 4aa chrger. Is a 4aa charger okay for it? If so, how long should I charge it? If I need more voltage, where can I get the battery cartridge for the charger?

P.S. How long does a layman tricell last at full speed and total runtime?

I use 4 aa's on my dual batt S2000, and it does just fine. I'd charge for about 2-2.5 mins. If you want more volts (which is'nt nescisary ) just find an old piece of electronics that holds more batts and rip it apart, then solder the power and ground wires to the charge stand that the car fits on. But you are at 6V with 4AA batts, and your tri-cells should be 3.6 Volts, so you actually have more than you need already.
At the bottom.

You only need three batteries to charge it. The layman's mod uses 40mAH batt's, so your runtime should be 4/5 stock.

The faster you use up your batteries' stored energy, the faster you get to the finish line!
