Hi Dale,
Most people use sealed lead acid (sla) batteries from about 15-30 amp hours 
(Ahs). most people use a servo connected straight to the gun but a couple of 
people use door lock actuators to fire their gun. You could find them at the 
junk yard provided there are some more recent cars there. As far as I know 
there are no Char d's (at least on this site). This hobby is not for 100% 
scale reproductions it's more a case of performance so you have to build 
around the motors so it doesn't have to be totally scale. but with that said 
it's posible to build scale and everything fit nicely inside. I know my 
tiger is 1" or so lower than scale and a couple of inches wider to make it 
look a little more mean. Anyway hope this helps...
