OK -- I think by now, everyone is aware of the 2 standard and one "trick" battery locations for the TC3:
3) "Split" (3fwd, 3back, with spacer in the center)...
Well.... I've been thinking (dangerous thing)...
How about putting 1/2 spacer at front, 1/2 spacer at rear, and turn the battery hold-down bar upside-down (so the flat side is down)... This would put the battery about 1/10" higher (the cells would line up with the "ribs" rather than the "slots" in the chassis), which could be bad, but it would let you CENTER a standard construction 6-cell pack (same weight balance F/R as a split pack)...
Would this be worth a try?
