The SMC 4000 pack is 20.5mm thick and it fits in the car well just had to grind the bulkhead a littleand the battery strap had to be shimmed up.5mm.The ezmount worked very well, the inserts lock the battery in the chassis.
I find it very surprising you were off balance with the 3.0 oz weight and 1.2 oz under pack. I do have a 2.5oz fixed weight that may have worked better in your case. I'm not sure how that can be, most 007's I've seen require some additional weight along with a 15oz+ NiMh pack. You should only be around 13oz or so right now...possibly less since you took some off.

Did you put the optional lead weight inside the slot or leave it out? Also what motor are you running?

Nope no lead.I put some lead in the centre of the chassis to bring it up to weight and balance front to rear.I also think that wires coming out the side of the batt adds side weight.The car now weighs 1420g 2g over min weight. I am running stock motors right now.and will be running 19t in the summer.I may have to adjust for the 19t later.I think that if I was running brushless I would have had to use the whole weight.My electronics are novak GTX and a Spektrum micro reciever.

Con, did you get the lipo balance from the London area or did you order it from the site? I'm hoping to go lipo soon and will need one/something to get the weight back. Thanks

Ordered it off the site.I also ordered the SMCs from Tag At Express. Ask them to ship USPS. It takes a little longer(two weeks)But they get here with no brookage fees or customs fees.Kevin and Tag are great to deal with!

Cheers for that Verndog its certainly a neat way off adding weight.

A word about 007 balance

I got all the electronics in, working, and setup today and to my surprise it took only 13.1 oz total on the battery side to balance the car. With the Orion 3600 at 7.7 oz, I added the base inserts at 1.2 oz, then the iniversal weight with just 4 of the 7 1/4oz weights to get there. Method used, is a proven dual scale balance, accurate within +/- .1oz.

I'm running Speed Passion 13.5, Speed Passion GT programmable ESC, Futaba 9550, and Futaba FAST receiver. The cars total weight with body came in 1590 grams so that is good (US version pretty well stock).

So users of the heavier packs that have done the top deck mod to fit (5000 mah generally 9.5 oz. could use the optional, less expensive 2.5 oz fixed weight and and be right there.
