That's going to be quite a lop sided setup. I'd suggest getting a cheap 2500mAh 4s pack unless you don't mind grinding the left side of your chassis to shreds

I'll have a 4074 motor on the other side to offset the weight

EDIT: I just checked, and assuming the roller is perfectly balanced left to right, the battery side will actually be about 80g lighter than the Motor/ESC/servo side.

With the tray cut like that to lay the pack flat does the body still fit properly??

I actually run 2 4000mAh 40c turnigy batteries from hobbyking in parallel (8000mAh 2s pack) to run long practice sessions with my hyper 10sc. Since the battery box is exactly the same as on the TT you could use a series connector to make a 4000mAh 4s pack that will stand up and still fit under the body of the TT. I don't know if I can post pics yet but if you want me to I'll try.

Wow, nothing like an 8th scale motor in a TT
You may want to eventually beef up the shocks too then. I hear TMAXX/EMAXX shocks work well on the 10sc so they should work good for the TT as well.

I tried to cut the battery tray to lay the battery flat like in my Hyper10 and I don't like it. A part of the battery is exposed and hangs over the side of the chassis. I have another stock tray that I'm going to put in. So, if you are thinking of doing the same thing I'm giving that idea a thumbs down.

I cut mine as well, and hacked the chassis to move the tray fwd. I was a bit bored LOL.It does overhang the chassis a bit, but I am running hard case LiPo, so I'm not too worried. I'll take some pics in a bit for referrence.

Shock limiting isn't necessary, steering mods seem to be less popular over here but they transfer over if you want to put the work in.
