Could any of you guys please measure the battery tray on the Sprint? Im probably going to buy a Sprint 2 Flux but I want to know if my lipos will fit.

I have a few of these: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=10277
I have these http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s..._hardcase_pack which are 45mm wide and 23mm high (yours are 46X26), and are JUST fitting, height wise... so, maybe the 26mm 5200 is too high...

i was told it was ackerman. its not a direct adjustment for toe, as if u keep them both at the same angles, the toe will still be even.

Of course. We also have an assortment of other hard case batteries, like IP 3800/35C or SP 4000/35C, and these also are the same height: 23mm and fit just tightly.
Even oval-shaped batteries like the YR or Susumu 3200's fit with the battery fastener in the top hole.

Thanks a lot!

Guess im gonna have to get some new batteries then Is there a big different in performance between lets say 25C and 30C? When they are from the same manufacturer and the same mAh.

Also, do you really need a hard case or you're using that just to be safe? Thought of buying a few of these: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=10305

Have any of you put PVC pipe over the tires for drifting? I've seen it done before and don't really want to spend $30 on tires/wheels for sliding around on the street. What size PVC do I need?

When I first bought my sprint I did the ABS mod for drifting. I believe its 1 1/2 inch ABS pipe you want. To make sure measure your wheels and then go check. It's really easy to do and they work great for slipping around.
