put the cells in your car the way you want it.....then run a thin amout of glue between them....leave for an hour then come back and do the other side..leave it for an hour....come back and solder em up..they will fit perfect and flush.....

thats how i do em

yep this is what i do.. i have 5 battery trays from oval cars.. i shoe gooe the packs then sit them on the trays.. after they are dry i add the bars. I have two rubber blocks i use to hold the pack .. works better to me thn a jig.. With the new larger cells, they not only fit diff on a chassis, but they seem to tight in the jigs.. they never seem to sit flat..

Default Jigs

If you use the old battery jigs with the new 3800's and 4200's, the fit is so tight, you wind up skinning the insulation (cell wrapper) off the cells. Not a good idea with a battery that sits next to a conductor like graphite. You're better off to skip the jig and save the insulation. Thanks; Ernie P.

Or you can carefully use a dremel to make room for the larger cells.

Seriously consider Slingshot Batteries for your cells people. Customer service and quality is 2nd to none.
