Default Slash battery Hold down queston

Hey guys I got a slash question.

On my SMC Lipo the wires are coming out of the top left of the lipo case. And of course the stock battery hold down is pushing the wires to one side. I dont think its doing any damage but is there anything i can do? I can post Pics soon.

I took some led weight and wrapped it in foam and put it in the rear position closest to the ESC mount and then put the battery in the fully foward position. The battery plate is now nowhere near the connectors and it gives it a little more rear traction.

It works pretty good.

+1 for cutting the Battery mount compartment...I actually took my dremel with the sanding drum to either side of the battery tray to accommodate packs such as the SMC and Venom for which the terminals exit in the upper corners. Works great and has 0 structural impact to the chassis.
