Default How do I make the starter box (RTR) run on 12v

I want to use a regular car battery to power the RTR starter box.

How do I connect it? Do I hook the motors up like they are now?
Are they running 2 x 7.2 volt in the stock box as 14.4 volt?
If so, can I just make them run on a 12 volt car battery straight up?

Please can someone help me out here
I have ordered a new 8ight-T 2.0 but not got it yet so I can't even look inside the starter...

It is set up to use a 12v gel cell battery as well. You should be able to just add some kind of connector for your car battery and just plug it in. I can't remember what the default wiring is but it comes with the stuff to use 2 7.2 batts in series as well as a 12+v batt

Thank you Casey, I think I'll have to wait and look for my self inside the starter and then figure out how to wire it upp to my car battery!
