Default testing waters~ custom lipo plates? b44, xx-4, etc

yes, i know people have made "lipo plates" before.... but i have done a few to where i have machined "bumps" if you will in the plates so they sit flush or just above the bottom of a slotted chassis. i can make them whatever size/ thickness/ weight you want. i have made alum front rb-5 bulkheads, alum casterblocks for losi xx-4/xxx-4 and various other items and sold them on this site in the past with much success. the more i see these plates here and there the more i notice that no one offers anything like this.


i will try and get some pics up in the next few days or so of one i've made in the past for a local national champ

also, these can be made out of whatever material your looking for, stainless steel, alum, whatever you want. depending on the complexity of the plate i would be looking in the range of 15-30 bucks shipped. dont let the price scare you away like i said this is just a feeler.


please share any and all interest for anything you need and we can go from there




UPDATE! for all you orion 32,36, and 3800 guys! this is the plate for you. they are machined around the "bumps" in the bottom of the packs and do not raise the battery up very much for a nice fit. they are just under 3oz and should bring the weight up on whatever vehicle to just under a normal 4200 weight!

Any way to do one for a B4/T4 so we dont have to add weight to the outside of the battery walls or to the battery strap? I know with a Orion 5000mah, you have no room to spare under the battery, but if you run a orion 3800, you do...

I just found some team fusion lead plates from a link somewhere on here. 4.4oz, I cut them in half, and re-heat shrunk them to the bottom of my trakpower 3200's.

Is it possible that you will eventually make a B44 plate? An idea I had was a plate nearly the same as the ones that come with the kit, only its wider and has no bumps for NIMH cells. It would allow you to keep your standard body posts with the SMC packs.
