The battery will not fit correctly no matter how I arrange the mounts. It just seems off I guess

If you want to add a setup to the link on top, an email address is indicated on low right part of the setup sheet.
Feel free for comments.

HTH
I can't find the editable setup sheet.
Also the Standard Setup Sheet points to Rebel setup sheet not EX

Won't work in stock form but I think it could be made to work with some massaging of the carbon plates and some needle and thread work.

But tape isn't so bad when it doesn't get beaten up by the track....

It was great to get to run my EX today. I'm working on putting together a setup sheet from my last and fastest run of the day. Larry's car was a bit quicker than mine today. We where thankfully trying different things while both running 13.5t blinky.

Learned some stuff today.

Hanulecs car was pretty good at the end of the day.

Mine just needs a little more steering. I think I found some stuff after thinking about it on the way home.

You know it only just clicked for me that it's not designed to run the strap anymore, I read your post, then looked at the pictures again, and now feel a little sad about it.

Its easily adapted though. I was running velcro on my exotec photon for a while with some paperclips bent and taped securely. With this new battery holder, it will be easy.

Where theres a will..... You know the saying.

p.s. I get mine TONIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just set up my 'old' photon for 17.5 blinky with an old LRP sphere and MAN is it light compared to the Hobbywing 120a!
