POOKYT and Tryhard: Thank on the advise. I hate the play. It doesn't look like a high end car with that much play. Tryhard, you have been very helpful on the 415 thread and this one!

I don't think its necessary to shim Losi cars. They work better with speed slop I think that's one of the things that makes'em easier to drive fast. The car isn't too tight (sensitive) to movement.

Default Removable battery tray

A quick question. For those guys that already have there cars. How is it dealing with the bottom load batteries? Is the tray held in with screws (what type & do the screw into something solid) and will they be able to handle constant in and out?

What size/type of LiPo fits in the tray?

Thanks, Bob

It is held it with screws and is screwed into the uprights for the upper deck. I personally never had any issue with the previous car with the bottom load battery and don't see any issue with this car either. Why do you feel there would be an issue with the constant in and out of the pack? There is no stress put on anything during this process.

Either one of the Lipo packs should fit in the car, there is special tray just for those packs and it is included in the kit.

John--These shocks are 10mm. I'm pretty sure the Tamiya and Yokomo springs work. You may have trouble getting those brands in a soft rate if your runing asphalt though. I'm just guessing here. Good Luck

I just wanted to make sure the battery tray screwed into something beefy.
