Ohhh I get it now! Will any other strong plastic piece work for this? I have lots of strong plastic crap that I dont use. So I will have to drill a hole into my precious Graphite?

I used to use a piece of foam glued on to the chassis.

Here's one I did earlier, but TSR6 did it first.

The servo mount is just to hold the battery tight against the chassis right???

On my old chassis ( Non GP+ ) I used a piece of AE Battery foam ( used in the buggies to keep the batteries tight ) I glued it with ShoeGoo between the chassis tub, and the battery, with just enough foam to push on the battery.

Edit - Louis - Great minds think alike. Same post within minutes of eachother.

Where can I find a giant, hard, chunk-o foam? I have some foam pieces like that, but they are too small. I need something that will REALLY hold down the pack, because I do not want to ever use strapping tape again!!

I used an old pro-10 rear tire, any firm foam will work.

TSR6 I find with the G+ chassis that my packs stay in fine now, same with you?

Rookie01, I dont know of any aluminum outdrives available. Is there any reason why you would want to change the composite ones? They hold up great even under low turn mod motor conditions and are the lightest available for better punch. I have only seen one get broke but you should have seen the rest of the car!!

Kevin-- any piece of plastic that will stick up far enough to disallow the batts from sliding out will be fine.

TSR6--- No, it is a stop sort of just to prevent the battery from sliding out...

Doug Gaut: Just broke one outdrive, the other thing that broke is only a front table. no other dammage. Thats why I was looking for a aluminum outdrive.

Rookie01, if durability is a problem you can always install some Trinity aluminum outdrive savers.

No problems at all since i switched to the GP+, although the only time I ever had problems after I put the foam block in there was with borrowed batteries, and the solder joint came un-done in a pretty good wreck.

I'm pretty sure I used the AE Foam block that does into the RC10T and RC10B3. The block acts like a 7'th cell (..lack of better way to describe it ), keeping the batteries in tight to the chassis. I know my LHS has them, I just dont know the #.
