I don't know if this helps but I am running a trinity 5000mah 40C Lipo in my BD-5 with Banana's and it fits. I just had to make a right angle bullet for the negative side to fit under the top deck. Works great. TQ'ed and won sedan at Blue Diamond with it.

yup, was actually thinking along the same lines of maybe a battery bar and bullet connector to make that "right angle" connection ... if needed. offhand, i actually like moving lipo packs out to the edge of the chassis. this makes balancing out the car left to right much easier with less use of lead weights on the pack itself. the IP based packs by trinity have the little humps under the pack which slot them into the chassis slots (which can easily be ground down with a dremel anyway) .... the reedy's dont which makes them easier to position around the chassis.

thanks for the inputs ... these are all helpful indeed. there are definitely some options to make the packs work.

Spool has been out for awhile. Here is the link.

http://www.teamyokomo.com/jpn/partsl..._bd_501s5.html

Can find it at any Hong Kong shop, Elwyn on here has some at his shop (just shoot him a PM), or Japan shops carry them as well.

Aerodynamically? I don't know about the wing mounts, but I want them to strengthen the wing down a little better. Too many times if someone lifts the car up by the wing, it will bend or deform the wing. I was hoping this would keep it from bending at the screw holes.

As for Ronalds ball studs/cups, I noticed that too. Not sure which ones he is using. I'm using Photon ball studs/cups on mine so that I can also have more adjustment on my links. They sit 1mm lower than stock. So to be at stock height, I need 1mm shim under them.

with 1mm lower, then can put extra shim w/o having d ball cup hitting d rim....

but from what i see from ronald car, it's lower more than 2mm or mebi 3mm...
