I had the same problem. This is what I did:
Gently filled the edges of the battery slots with a file or sandpaper (I used that Kyosho lexan sander thing...it worked fine) at a 45 degree angle, all the way around. The I put CA on the edges (blow off the particles and wipe rubbing alcohol on it first).
Then put a washer underneath the battery posts to lift then up a little. I also rounded out the battery posts (the stock plastic ones) with a drum attachment on a dremel, so the battery could fit in there better.
