Default Best Lipo Holder for SCTE

I use the 2.0 thumb screws and graphite strap on my 3.0 truck because it holds the lipo better for my modified lipo position. After moving the lipo towards the outside rail for balance the strap on the lipo is off center and looses some holding leverage. The graphite strap covers more of the battery and with thumb screws it gets that holding power back and then some.

You can use BRP Locking Body Clips without spending much money.

I use the stock 3.0 lipo holder with clips on my 2.0 without any problems. I don't see an easy way for the clips to come off. They fit very tight with the foam I added to take all slop out of the mount. Even so, anything is possible in a racing environment. A hard hit from the side, a turn marshall getting a hand in the wrong spot flipping truck over or a bumper intruding in there and pulling the clip..

One thing is for sure, the thumb screw mount with graphite strap is as bulletproof as it gets. That's why I also use the pro-line screw down body mounts. No missing clips during or after a race and my body is not rattling and flopping around the track. It works!

I'm already using the graphite battery strap and proline body mount system. I just need the posts and thumb screws. To bad I can't get them in time for this Friday's race. Thanks for the insight though.

hahah, you ladies must have petite hands. the body clips are way quicker and easier.
the thumb screws are a pain. wait till you loose one and you will loose them.

I have been using the thumb screws since before the 2.0 was out. Have not lost one yet but I did buy and extra set just in case. I only remove one. The other I spaced up properly with plastic spacers and thread locked into place. I just take the back on off and swing the brace out of the way. A single thumb screw get the battery in and out. Easy and fast.

thats a good idea. quicker with only 1 screw for sure.
the thumb screws are hard for my big fingers to handle.
the pins are easier for me probably because i have done the pin thing
a 100,000 thousand times or so in my life.

The SCTE thumb screws are pretty big really. I have others that are much smaller. Look into it. That and the CF strap and you should never lose a battery.

I tried Staggers on my Tekno but they sucked badly losing drive out of corners and very unstable on turn in. On 2WD SCT, they are great but only there I would say.

With a 4300 and a 15t pinion, you should have a torque monster
I run a 4300kv with a 14 tooth pinion. Its perfect

Guys do you know what size the differential black o-ring? The stock o-ring seems not good it started leaking center differential and rear differential already empty oil only 4 race. I upgrade x-ray washer still leaking came from driveshaft. I think the silicone clear seems good but don't know what the size.
