Default LiPo -- This is Not another LiPo's are unsafe thread!!!

What cars are you guys running LiPo in without any major modification? If you did have to modify, what did you have to do and please post a pic if possible.

Please no talk about how you feel LiPo's are unsafe there is another 30 threads that already do that.

cyclone with orion 3200 & premium power 4700 no probs
apart from cutting the end of a scew just so it doesnt stick out as much, which is nothing really.

last year - FK05 with Platinum 4800's, using the standard Xray CF battery stap. Modification needed : slightly reshape the plastic holders on the chassis with an x-acto. Absolute perfect fit once this is done, a user-friendliness dream.

this year - Cyclone Hara, with (the same) Platinums - need to slightly file one of the top metal chassis braces to accomodate for the case's height. Again, a 5mn job with a file. I use tape - and I hate tape but have no choice.

My Yokomo BD has the Orion 3200. It took a little bit grinding the top deck center post to make the battery slide in all the way.

RDX and RDX Phi both with 3200 Orions. RDX fit fine and PHi had to sand a little extra on the battery slots.
