I was pretty close to getting it to fit... but decided to run the car first with NiMH and see how it does. If all goes well... I'll probably go ahead and try to mod it to fit Lipos.

There a few on ebay (US seller) for $385 + shipping.
I've contacted the seller already and says he'll be stocking parts for the car.

Default E4 with Brushless and Lipo

Just thought I'd post picks of my E4. Just got the Orion 3200 lipo to work in the car. 8 5mm washers and a dremel and it should be a go. I've noted the areas that need to be dremeled and places that washers need to be added to. Please note that I only showed placement of 4 washers... Just mirror the placement and put washers in on corresponding part. All in all it wasn't very hard. I haven't tested the car on the track yet... but it looks like it will work just like stock.

1.The chassis had to have a little bit of a shave. Shave away the front lower battery brackets. These look like they were used to support the battery a little. I doubt it will change anything since the battery is already secured using 4 screws.

2. I also had to shave the top chassis brace to make way for one of the battery leads. This was toward the back of the top brace.

3. Washers need to placed.

4. Lastly you will need to shave one aluminum part. This is the Left Rear Brace. The one that the side belt tensioner attaches to. You will need to shave the aluminum at an angle to get the batteries to fit.

Hope this helps.

I know it's a little bit of work... but in my opinion it's worth it. I would rather run lipo.

is chassis tweak after a hard collision
