You will need to grind a little off the inside of the tray for it to fit right.

Anyone ever tried to put A123 / LiFePo4 pack inside? 4 cells. I'm amazed by this chassis, want to buy it, but I use only a123 and liion packs which are little bigger than sub-s nimh.

I can tell you the Orion 3600 will not fit w/o modification to the pack it's self. I was going to borrow some packs for IIC and am glad I tried it before I got there. So I just purchased some new Nimh packs for IIC and will convert to Lipo at a later date.

I'm trying to find some alternative ball cups as I find the standard ones rubbish. I have tried RPM as recommended but as I run the outer pick up on the hub at the rear the RPMs rub the wheel. Has anyone tried any others?

Thanks
Tim

I've done 3 of them already, the first one I spent way too much time on, the easiest and fastest way is to use a 4" cutoff wheel or a good grinding bit, just shave the edges of the inside of the tray down. The inside of the tray is radiused a little too tight for the pack, you just to grind that out.

With an SMC 4000, SP LPF, futaba faast receiver and JR8800s servo I needed, 35g on the left side for balance, and about 25g on the battery to make weight. I also recommend strapping the battery to the tray, I had one of mine end up in the belt.

I picked up a tip from the Mike Haynes at 360, he puts very short screws and an o ring in the ball studs to keep them on the car in the event they pop off. I'll have to take a photo to show you. I lost the b-main because of that very same issue ;(. I touched the wall a leeeeetle too hard adn POP! off it came and there went my hopes and dreams of a b-main victory.

Normally 104s are run with 17.5 motors. Most common pinion gear is 53 range.
