You can fit it without the hard case, or let it hang off the chassis a little, this way the top desk does not cause any issues. Obviously, good double-sided tape will be needed to sure it.

If you want to play with a high-capacity battery that will fit, check out the MaxAmps 6000, it it 22mm tall.

I guess what I am asking is how close do you guys get the wieght between left and right and have you ever put it on scales or are you just using the balance buttons?

my T2 008 running Lipo was under weight by a ton. I recently got two scales to balance both front to back and left to right using a technique described by John Stranahan:

i added a ton of weight to my T2 and even went over the weight limit of 1525g to get a better weight balance.

Man I never would have tried that....I have four pocket scales I purchased from Habor Freight...I can actually measure at each wheel,nevr thought of trying the 2 scales not sure of the accuracy...50/50 I would think would be easy to obtain and I have that Due to my LF and RR having Identical weight and my RF and LR have nearly the same weight which would give me 50/50 but my issuie is between LF/RF and RR/LR...But I am probably over thinking it thats why I wandered if anyone has balanced there car at all four tires...It might be imposible...

The two scale setup doesn't seem that bad. I didn't shoot for 50/50. I put more weight at the back, and more to the left as most tracks are counter clockwise (I figured this out after a discussion w/ Mike Haynes and measuring his Losi).

I can change from Lipo to subc with no problems. I used the PPD lower tray with double sided tape. Works great!! The pack is the same weight as a sub c.

The new aluminum dampers Will improve the performance of the original shock absorbers?

Question or Statement?

The Aluminum shocks are smoother and more consistent than plastic, but they do not have adjustable pistons like the stock plastic body shocks. So if you have about $100.00 bucks to drop, than get the aluminum shocks.
