All you need to do is put 2 3mm dia washer between the underside of the Diggity brace and the chassis where the hold down screw goes into the battery strap holder.

I will be listing the new offset brace that can be used with the PPD base plate tonight. I suppose its possible to sell them with the shims.. I will also be placing a link to the PPD base plate to use along with the CF brace!

Depending on which LIPO you are using, you will be ok with the original. The new one moves the battery pack .060 to the inside for the Trakpack and other LIPO's the have the plugs (positive and negative) more towards the inside of the pack...

if it matters im running 3600 orion and 180 from how you have it

my thought's were slot the post area. so you can move it where you need it and then you could utilize all the org's you cut also.
might be wrong but I would like to get one and see if it was slotted if it would work that way

I've got an Orion 3600 and cant see how you can ever get the 4mm plug in with the top deck right over the inside corner of the battery. Is there a reason you cant flip the battery the other way?

Not sure how slotting the post area would help. It's position is set by the screw location that is set in the chassis. You'd have to elongate the chassis screw hole which I wouldn't recommend.

My pack is an Orion 4800, I may just off it and replace with a different brand.

I run the Orion 4800 pack as well, the stock brace should be fine? Have you installed it and checked it out yet?

I dont think slotting the holes is the best option, as it could tweak in a wreck or hit and the pack and brace could move! I would recommend mounting the battery with your positive and negative plugs to the rear of the car. Not to mention shorter wires are better!
