M2c has a radio tray to use for the battery up forward or u can get the mp9 battery box and drill holes into it to try it first.

I use to be scared of Lipos too. Now with knowledge from my local races, Im good. Lipos are fine as long as you take care of them.

Moving the battery forward increases steering both on and off throttle.

In order to do this conversion you need;
m2c2660 forward battery mount tray
kyif478 battery box
kyif479 receiver box

I have all these parts in stock and on-sale.

I used two aluminum wing stay or radio tray posts, and a mugen brace. Drilled two holes in the side guards and bolted her up. Used zip ties to hold the battery to the brace.
