It great! My pervious car xxxs G+ also on my table, I just buy some new parts for it and plan to play is as my second car.

The other reason for me loving losi very much is non-stop parts supply!

Anyone know the actual unmodified battery space for a lipo?

The number appears to be 23.3 X 46.5 X 139 from what I found here, but then again, I could be wrong.

Length avaliable-aprox. 139 mm with un modified bulkhead and jr 9000s servo with no serrvo mount spacers.


The orion lipo (3200) is 46.1mm at widest point, 137.5 mm long, and 23mm tall including the cell "bumps".

Looks like you got some pulley widening to do!! its pretty easy, mikexray posted how to do it a few posts back.

That's what i found un-modified with a steel plate lipo tray that is as thick as the chassis plate.

I'd measure again but my calipers must be in my friends tool box 'cause i can't find mine.

Am i the only one that took these demensions? it would be nice to have another source besides just my measurements, 'cause you never know...

Default Steel lipo tray

That's weird, I have an unmodified lipo tray and it's only 45.7mm wide x 137.8mm long at the flat part on the inside not to mention the rounded edge. I still have battery rubbing issues with the Orion 3600 (w46.75xh23.10xL137.7) I have when it shifts onto a pulley and belt for the front. Depth was 26.52mm bolted in the car and measuring from the top deck down then subtracting the 2.8 mm for top deck thickness. So it looks like the minimum measurements are...

lower width 45.7 mm inside of tray.
Upper width 46.5 mm at the pulleys.
length 137.8 mm inside of tray.
height 21.3 mm at the bulkheads.

If the battery has the cells bumps at the bottom (IP,Orion) the tray does not need modified. I've tried a newer smc 5000 and it would need some work to fit.

I managed to get a Yeah! 5000 in mine (Size 138x47x26mm) with the plastic lipo tray. The back was a little snug, but no rubbing. I'll have to switch to lower profile battery if I want to use the metal tray. The Yeah! 4000s don't fit at all, way too wide at 47.8 mm.

With the SMC 4000. A few of us have broken out the dreamel and taken off some of the edging to make the pack sit down all the way int the steel tray.

Took a few hours to do but it works great.

Of the steel battery tray itself?

Yep to get the wider packs to sit flat. Do a search for "grind steel tray"

Take a look at mine on Sunday if you're there. I'm hoping to get enough practice in to race it, but not sure.

Good luck! I'll see you in a couple of weeks then. I'm on vacation starting next Friday and will not be racing at all.

Having the steel trays milled is so much cleaner looking if you have that option. I was going to go the dremel route as well and remembered I knew someone with a mill and he does great work.
