Anyone able to fit the Team Epic 5000 40c battery or the IP5000 40c (same batt)? I looked at an SMC 5000 and grinding the bulkhead wouldnt work...id practically grind all the way through it. Would i have to buy the lipo bulkhead thing and how would that affect performance?

I'd grind mine down to about 2.5 mm on the bulkhead and good enough to fit the IP5000 40c in with about .5 - 1mm clearance.

Yes, they are the same batt.

i think the upper deck will let the chassis flex a little more not having the arch of metal there and u can find the lipo decks for a good deal

I just fitted a Team Epic 5000 in a new Cyclone TC. I had to grind the upper bulkhead, but it was extremely easy. I really didn't have to grind that much off either. I don't think it's worth it to buy the lipo upper deck to fit this particular battery.

Hi All, desparately looking for a used but not abused Cyclone or Cyclone TC but not having much luck...yet. The budget can only take so much. Need some help since I'm totally new to HPI stuff. Where's a good place to find setups and other HPI related tech info?? Also, anybody using the Exotek lipo chassis on the cyclone?? Looks good but could use feedback. Any particular issues with the cyclone that need to be addressed?? Going through this thread but it's loooooooong !!!
