I use the stock battery hold down.
Tape the battery to it and use longer screws on the posts to lift them up a little and I've been good to go.
I've seen velcro and zipties too, I use electrical tape on the ends and in the middle.

I'm using the venom 5000mah lipo pack and the only modification required was to dremel the ribs out of the battery tray. After this is done, there should be no need to raise the hold down posts. Fits great

This is the route I took and it seems to be working good also.

Thanks for the help guys

Are you guys using the stock setup with lipos?

really need a good setup for next week all the guys at track I run at run B44's and want to smoke em with my losi
they think it can't compete with them so I took it out of the closet haven't ran it for a couple years the shocks still feel better than any of theirs.

Your XXX-4 should be fine.. We have several of us running them at our track and just about every other 4wd you can think of!

Just because it's older, doesn't mean it's crap.. just older.. lol

Nothing better in a race than hearing a B44 or ZX-5 grinding up their beveled gears or spurs! We get one of those guys every week! The XXX-4 guys aren't just breaking down.. usually it's a hard crash or something to take us out.

Have fun!

Got that right no bj4 b44 or what ever they are calling them these days can take beating I put on my G+ a couple years ago.

I just don't know if the stock set up is good for lipo or where to add the weight.

I'm running real close to the stock set up for now -
one .030 spacer under the caster and steering block ballstuds.
gray springs in front and yellows in the rear...
30w shock oil (f&R)
sway bar(rear)
10 degree hinge pin brace (front)
1 degree block(rear)
5oz. added weight on the battery side(difference between 3300nimh and the lipo)
slipper locked down
tires- vary with tracks

This is my current outdoor loamy track setup, however I constantly test and this could change.

You add weight to better balance the buggy. I would install the lipo and check the left to right balance and add weight to get it as close to balanced as possible. This will make it jump better. Most of the guys here are running a stick 4800-4900 lipo without any additional weight and doing well.
