The Reedy 1S packs have little nubs on the bottom and they fit perfectly in the slots -- nice and snug -- but still allow you to swap between front and rear mounting easily with zero modifications. My first recommendation would be to try them.

If your batteries don't have the nubs, and you still want to experiment, I would try to find a machine shop that could use an end mill to take off a little material, but be careful, you're not dealing with much thickness there and I would be a little concerned about long-term durability. I don't think it's a Dremel job. Good luck!

I just use servo tape on the bottom of my Smc battery, works great and does not weigh very much. but i like the door stopper things too.

Cutting a place in the graphite for your battery to sit is the worst thing you can do. It completely destroys the integrity of the graphite sheet. That is the reason we didn't do it for the new kit. That and some countries do still use cells.

No, I had to add weight to get the car up to minimum. I do take great effort in placing electronics in such a way that the car ends up balanced.

thanx sean. i think my problem is the tekin rs is probably lighter than the lrp and my futaba 3pk reciever is gigantic they dont make a micro. also i noticed the reedy lipo pack is heavier on the non terminal side. that and the fact im not running a rx pack im running the booster which weighs nothing. with the big reciever theres just no room to move my electronics around

I had to add an 1.25 ounce to the right side. Using a Tekin RS, Spektrum Micro RX, Futaba 9651 and SMC 1S 4900 with a Novak Booster.
