I've kept my '04 specifically for when lipo becomes legal. I've done a little bit of math and found that an "in-line" lipo pack on the right side will need minimal ballast to off set any weight differences. You would only have to add weight for ROAR events.--Al

I really don't believe all the newer cars are much ,if at all, better than the fk04. The car has superb weight balance and is built like a tank. It is also very forgiving if your set-up is not spot on. The only real draw back to the car is diff access,but once you get used to it, it's not so bad. The only reason I haven't run mine lately is because I've been working out my TA05 for TCS. I actually bought mine from a guy that wanted to get rid of it as he had just bought the then new fk05....I bought it off of him for $60 shipped. Can you believe that...Best deal in the history of deals--Al

What batteries are you racers running in your FK 04's. I am currently running 3300's from 2 seasons ago but I want (scratch that, I NEED) to get new batteries. Will the 3800's fit without modifying (or dremeling) the chassis? How about 4200's? Thanks.

I had to dremel the bulkheads a little bit and use some spacers under the battery posts to get 3800's to fit. It was worth it, 3800's are a great battery.

if you look up a couple of post`s yous ee my pics & my 04 with IBEA42`s in
all i did was dremel a bit more curviture in the battery starps post`s
with BMI chassis jason does chamfer the battery slots really well ,much better then the std xray 3.5mm chass`s

if you have std 2.5mm chassis ,then matbe a 1mm spacer under the post`s wil help aswell
i use polepositon IP cells no trub`s ,did not touch Bulkheads atall in my car

I filed my chassis down and added a spacer under the strap post to raise them as well as a light grinding to the posts to raise them. My HURRICANE 4200's fit in there great and I have never lost a pack while running the car.
