Questions?? New 5000mah 40c 2s lipo erevo fit issues...

My current 2s 5000mah 25c tunigys fit fine because the cables come out the side. Then I run the cables through the vents. Well my new gens ace lipos cables come out top of lipo not side. Anyone else using these in erevo?

pic of issue.

You can either trim the battery compartment and vent to allow the cables to run straight out the top or modify your banana plugs (cut a groove in the side of the solder cup) and solder the wires so they come out of the plug at a right angle.

Thanks for the reply. Im leaning more towards a lil dremmeling than a lil soldering. Especially on a lipo. I have absolutely no experience soldering on an energized component.

Make sure you have a soldering iron that at least gets to 900 degress and is 40wats.

If your not comfortble doing it than ask your lhs or a non local hobby shop to do it and the mod also to trim your battery tray.

You dont need to solder the pack, just the plugs (while they are disconnected from the pack) but if your not comfortable with it, then dremelling will get you running.

Ok forgive me for my noobness here. What plugs are you talking about soldering then? the bullet connectors? I was thinking you meant to solder my plug(deans or traxxas) with cutting the bullet off and soldering that to the lipo? creating the angle i needed. Now im just confused when you said not to solder the lipo but just the plugs?

The plugs / connectors that plug into the 2 large holes in the lipo (marked + and - ) are called banana plugs. They are basically 4.5mm bullets. in the top of the bullet plug is a cup that the wire is soldered into. If you cut a groove in the side of the cup to allow the wire to come out of the bullet at a right angle, it will allow you to route the wires out the standard battery cable recess in the door.
