I dont think so, they have pushed the motor as far back as possible in the photo shots to fit the esc. The battery on the other hand sits about 5mm further forward.

Yes it will, lipo's are 23,5mm and the distance to the top deck is 25mm. My LRP 5300 lipo fits perfectly.

what do you use from keeping it from sliding out or is it a non issue?

I do 2 layers of glass tape and movement of my SMC's is not an issue. With only a single layer I had a few failures if I hit something head on but I've had some pretty big hits and the double layer has always been up to it

Great pictures from Japanese magazine is shown up, but could anybody tell me if this is just proto or mass production 1.
In fact, i don't see any difference with the old 1, then the price is too much for 1 car which nor JMRCA could win, if this price is fixed i wonder to buy a HB Cylone Andy Moore then modified it with new parts:http://rc-japan.de/article.php?id=27...0b0c1247806b1d

LRP lipo has a batt slots on the bottom so it stays in place.
Otherwise 2 layers of tape, like Graig said should be OK.

Most lipos have those bumps

Aren't the connectors obstructed by the top deck?

is that battery reversible? you can have the flat side down? or the "feet" side down? with connectors on both sides?

OK so I threw both front CVD pins at racing last night, one in the first heat and one in the final I haven't cleaned or greased them since I built the car, so I'm thinking this is just a result of that. Do you guys have any other tips? I've heard of people filing a flat spot where the grub screw goes, and putting some heat shrink around the outside over the hole to stop them exiting into the steering knuckle, but I'm not sure if there is anything else I should do?
