Just install the bullet connectors right onto the speedo wires and plug them into the battery. But be careful not to put them in backwards!!

How would you charge the batt? (Sorry if its a dumb question)

Easy... Get 2 pieced of wire about 3 inches long. One red one, one black one and install bullet connectors on one end of each. One end goes into the battery with a bullet connector attached and the other end you strip off about a half inch of wire and hook up the alligator clips from the charger.

I am going to space the upper deck up 0.5mm to allow the 4800 Lipo to fit in and not compromise the flex ability of the chassis. Does anyone know where I could find the spacer needed for the steering bellcrank???? I have the ones for the upper deck but cant find the one needed for the steering..

I used a sanding drum on a dremel to wittle down the knuckle. If you are wearing out the front lower shock captured end, you should probably turn down your steering.

You can use shims as mentioned, but I bought the +.75mm Wheel Hexes from XRay. This provided the perfect clearance, and I just adjust for the extra width at the arms.

Hey guys. I have a lipo 3200 orion pack. I need to add weight to the battery side of the car. ALOT of weight.

I am not going to lie. It makes me wanna get a losi. Put my lipo right down the middle and add NO weight.

Anyway can I shoe-goo lead weight right onto the side of my lipo battery? Will it eat through the case? I really dont want to put them up on top. I want them as low as possible.

Default Weights...

The Shoe Goo worked ok for me. I pick up some tire balancing weights from a garage and used the tape that they come with.
I added weights to the front - back - outside and thinned down weights in the slots on the bottom. The weights on the bottom - I did shoegoo to save space.
When done, I also covered the weights with CA glue to just seal the lead (so did not have to keep washing my hands).
I added some x-ray weights and balanced the car side to side. The car ended a little over weight.

Well then buy a losi..

Shoe goo won't eat the pack.. unless you manage to get it inside the pack somehow I don't see a problem..

Man, unless you are nibbling on the blocks of lead in your spare time, it ain't going to hurt you.

Adding weight to the battery is fine but if your concerned with following ROAR rules they prohibit placing any weight on the battery it must be installed on the chassis

I thought that changed with the 2008 ROAR Rules? If not, how in the hell can you add 150+ grams to the side of a car using a LiPo being that LiPo is now ROAR legal for 2008?

When I was running the Orion 3200 on my T2 '007, I stuck all but 35 grams on the outer rounded edge of the battery.
