just ordered the kit today, and at first was going to run a single 4S lipo but i do like the twin 2S set up saves me $$$ in the long run i can use the packs in my slash as well, so for me i like the set up but if it doesn't work out sure i can mod the tray to fit a single 4S or 5S pack

A hard case 7.4V battery is about 47mm, which on its side as shown in the battery tray sample will just fit under the body when you include the foam pad and straps.

So no more than 47mm and you will be safe.

AE has a RC8E body out to that gives more room for the packs and area to cut vents for them as well

Am I assuming correctly that the little piece that helps the wires going to receiver clear the center driveshaft is the bridge part listed on part #89509?

yes. That, along with way the wire routes thru the battery tray and receiver box, keep the wire safely out of harms way of the center shaft.

Default Battery set up

Since the RC8 is set up to use two 7.4v hard shell packs I thought I would find some information on Associate's website about how to wire two batteries together correctly or even some sort of adapter for sale. Since I could find neither I was wondering if anyone could explain or illustrate how to wire two 7.4v packs together?

I would like to have the packs wired together so that I could charge and balance both packs at the same time. I understand the basics for wiring them in series (neg. to pos. bridge wire, and then neg. to pos. to deans connector). But what about the balancing port?

Keep in mind that some packs are hard wired and have a balancing adapter ie. Hyperion, but others have the mini plug in the hard shell between the positive and negative plugs with no external wiring.

Which should I use?

Just got my AE conversion yesterday, and I'm wondering if anyone has one and is using a NEU 1512 2.5d/f. I am switching from a RC Monster conversion to the AE conversion (the only reason is I broke my battery tray last week). Anyways with the AE motor mount my motor wont fit. The motor is actually taller then the mount, even with the spacer plate. I compared the two mounts and the RC monster kit, holds the motor a mm or two higher then the AE. What's wierd is, my buddy has the same motor and his AE kit fits fine. I know NEU is constantly updating there motors and maybe mine is slightly different? I ended up using my RC Monster mount with the AE kit and it fits fine.

Nice video...I am enjoying the kit so far. It is so nice having the reciever in the box but its a pain taking the servo horn off to get in there. The motor motor is beefy and its cool that the motor screws key in because the other mounts are a pain when you are trying to thread the screws in...another great product from Team Asssociated.

Off of this list what all is NEEDED to complete the conversion MINUS the AE battery tray. I want to use the rest of the kit on the RC8t but use a different tray for bigger batts. DO I need all the hardware like the screws etc? I totalled it all up and it is about $100 for the parts separate minus the battery tray. I didn't include the pinions and body obvioulsy but ut was still about $100.
