Default 4200MaH pack in a t3

I was wondering if a 4200MaH stick-pack will fit in a T3's battery slot. I'm getting back into R/C and I will be digging out my old T3 to start racing again. Any help would be appreciated.

I think the biggest battery on the market while the T3 was being raced by the team was a 2000mah pack....but I could be wrong. probably wrong. I don't see why a 4200 stick wouldn't fit, if anything, take it to your LHS and ask them to set a pack into your car, if it fits.....buy it!

Oh ok, I was just curious, the last time I raced electric was right around when the 2000MaH-3000MaH packs were out. And I remember that the 3000s where slightly larger than the 2000s.

They fit just fine but it is kind of tight. A side by side back with thicker bars will be a touch snug but it's fine. I had a T3 with IB4200's and it was fine, no modification was needed. If you run a side by side pack with something like a deans pig tail on it and not battery bars coming from the +/- terminals it will be even tighter but nothing a quick dremel can't cure..
