Batteries are typically charged from the factory, but you should always correctly break-in a new pack. Brand new batteries are only at 75% of their full power.
Here is some good info: http://cartsunlimited.net/Battery_Break-in_Methods.html

After a full charge retry it in forward and reverse and let us know if it works. Kep track of any click noises or not when the gas pedal is depressed.

Make sure you let the charger fully charge until it shuts off may take more then 12 hrs
