Default Zippy batteries doesn't fit in mini e revo?

Hello guys,
I recently bought few ZIPPY Flightmax 1500mAh 3S1P 20C batteries for my 1/16 e-revo. But it seems that they are a little bigger than the stock e revo battery. So my question is what is the best way to make them fit in the battery hole ?
I dont want to mess it up so desided to ask here for advice first.

Cut the battery door back from the front almost to the front latch. It's a tight fit but it works!

I run a pair of Turnigy 3S 1600 20C lipos in mine and ran this wires out the back. I had to cut about 1/2" off the batt door at the rear to let the wires out. Otherwise I couldn't get the rear door latch closed. With piece trimmed off, now both latches close.

Its a tight fit, the lipos will not be moving around!
