Will battery with dimensions of 133x44x16mm fit the stock battery location? I searched and googled but can't find the dimensions

If your looking for new batteries, why not go for the shorty 2S lipo's??
They fit perfectly and also are just as wide as the top deck.

Shorties are going in to my P34 when it gets rebuilt.
(was built for bumpy outdoor, but now being rebuilt for carpet indoor)

I've used this before and it fits perfectly. The dimensions listed are 135x45x22mm.

Basis settings of car are:
Black springs front and lube the kingpins with some 10.000 oil.
Ridehight front 5MM.
Rear flex t-bar,red spring and 400 oil in shock.
Rideheight rear 5.5 to 6MM
Don't know what battery holder you are using?
The one with the rubber rings or the pivotball?

regards Roy

Wow thanks! I'm using the stock o-ring battery holder for now because that's what came with it and I don't know what I need to add. Red spring I'm assuming you mean a Tamiya red spring, correct? And "flex t-bar", I assume that's an option part, correct? Also, is there anything special to do for the friction pad, specific setting or grease/oil? Again, sorry for the dumb questions, I'm an off road guy, have no clue about this stuff yet.

There are no dumb questions only dumb answers
Here is how i have setup my F103.
Remember tho this is a foam setup or a Pits tire setup for rain.
Front springs Tamiya black,10.000 oil on the kingpins(some use AW grease).
I dremeled about 2MM in totall of the steeringbloks(top and bottum) to have me setup the rideheight a bit(safes on truing the tires).
Front is 5MM rideheight.
Front tires and this differs on track, 40 or 45SH foam or Pits PS-0543 for rain.
Rear i have 25or 30SH foam depending on grip(we got a track that generates a lot of front grip) and Pits PS-0545 for rain.
When having a really grippy track go for 36SH rears)
Centre shock 400 Tamiya oil and red Tamiya spring,Tamiya flex T-bar(the one with the S in it) and rideheight 5.5 to 6MM.
The T-bar is mounted at the front battery holder with the old type like you have but without the rubber O-ring but a spacer ring.
The rear battery holder is the pivot ball type.
This will give you a really soft rear setup and it won't wear out the holes on the T-bar.
I use the normall type front suspension arms but at the centre i cut off some material to get a bit of play with camber settings.
It isn't much but i can help to stop the uneven wear on your front tires.
Diff setup is from the F104 Pro but loose the ballbearing in it and use instead the 1 piece trust bearing(and offcourse ceramic balls).
Remember to put the spring washers like this----> )( and not like it states in the F104Pro manual.
It gives you a super smooth working diff that i didn't have to rebuild the whole season.
I use to run this setup with Tamiya A slicks rear and B up front and did have a well balanced car with normall temps.
When hotter i lost a bit of rear grip(tires getting to soft)
Hope you can use this setup where your driving.

Regards Roy
Ps i drive mostly on unprepaired nitro tarmac tracks
PS ps i also use shorty lipo's the get the weight more centred

You have to get the 104 diff assembly and, if you use the stock 103 axle, shorten the axle a bit. Just got mine today and fixing to try and figure it out. Guy I race with is running the same setup on asphalt with rubber and it is great. Mine will be the same setup
