Default Lipo in a Xray T2

can anybody point me in the right direction to get a lipo to fit in a Xray T2 I am thinkin its gonna be kinda tough

Looks like I can trim up the bulkead a little on the nob that hangs down between the cells but I'll need to find a hardcased lipo that is only 21mm tall

Anybody know of a lipo that might fit hardcased please

thanx Im a newbie to on road

Your right about the bulkhead. I use the Orion 3600 lipo. I figure the 3800 will fit to. I also trimmed the chassis battery braces so the pack would fit. Didn't use the middle braces. Then I shimmed the battery strap. Fits nice and snug.

Foxy,

Just curious, have you checked tweak on you car withe the strap attached and without? Look like there is quite an arc on that strap that may lead
to some tweak that makes me think setiup a extra bit of a challenge.

I resorted to tape for just this reason.

That pic was taken before I put the shims in. It is now flat and no tweak.

Are there any newer Lipo packs that fit on the Xray T2 ('06)? I would like some recommendations that would not require too much modification to the chassis/bulkheads.

there are trays or lipo holders you can look at the 007 thread since the chassis is the same,i made my own tray to fit my lipo.or like a post above look for a lipo that has the height you need
