When i had my 415 i ran a bitty design lipo tray, no need to cut the bulkhead

BDTYPE2 - Bitty Designs Lipo Tray to suit Touring cars - wide offset
Description: This is an alloy Lipo tray that fits underneath your Lipo battery to move the pack out slightly to avoid the top deck on a touring car. Added advantage is that it also adds approximately 50-60g weight back on to the chassis helping balance the car.


grab one at feralbatteries.com.au

I presume you meant the direct 1 way, which has a few parts ...

holder: 3454395
pulley(x2): 51213
bearing holder: 9604263
spur gear plate: 9455643
+ 2 screws, 2 bearings & 1 'c' clip

I presume this is what you are after ...

Hi,

Does anyone know of a cheap solution for me to use a 5300 30c lipo in a 415msxx?

Milling the bulkhead isnt an option as it wont fit under the top deck, but i were thinking more along the lines of hanging the battery out of the side a bit to help with the left/right weight balance.

the only way to do it is just buy the bitty designs.. lucky for me the guy that i bought my msx gave me his lipo tray.. it works really good. balance is great and works with any type of lipo.. btw the tray that i have is the same as the bitty designs.but just differnt brand,,

Bitty design is the best option for a lipo tray

I used 2 old post and just custom made a carbon plate and used heavy velcro tape on the battery at the top and bottom where the plate and chassis touches the battery.

Default MSXX Stick Pack Lipo

Hey Guys,

Here is my MSXX with a StickPack conversion. It fits my SMC 5200 40C's quite nicely. This is another alternative to Bitty Designs. However its next to impossible to find.

before I had the MSXX stickpack conversion, I would just angle the lipo. didnt need any weights...

MSXX Stick Pack




Angled lipo

Works alright if the track is damp. I do not go out if there is standing too much water, quite tempting to try it but will be costly to my speedo and motor if water gets in.

In any case, our club will cancel the race if no one decides to race due to too much standing water.

Slight drizzle is fine. Just have to run with wets.
