The battery brace only tweaks your car if you over tighten. I have run it with no problems as of late. You just have to get them snug.

That's the plan. You'll be amazed at the quality of the kit and the adjustability. Alot of good stuff in this car.

Dude,
You can lower the cells more in a thicker chassis compared to a thinner one without them hitting the track underneath your chassis.

Please think this through before replying.
I might not have been clear enough in my first post.
(besides that, me personally, I've no prob with the batts clamping too much)

Not true.
A see previous post regarding chassis

B concerning the topdeck.
Since it is mounted to the underside of the bulkheads, mounting a thicker topdeck will decrease your space!

You ARE the DUDE.

Never the less, it's all part of the calcs.

I didn't know of the different thickness top plates.

I'm such an idiot !!

Spaced my bulkheads 0.5 mm and tried the car at the track today. No disadvantage performancewise, quite the opposite actually. The car felt really good.

I think Holmenkollen means underneath the bulkheads.
So it raises the topdeck and bulkheads in all so a litlle more space/play for the batteries will be created!

Since someone has tried raising the bulk heads does that mean we could fit a 4800/5000(hard case) lipo in them?If done what would be the overall effect?
