Default X-ray lipo fitting and balance?

I'm sure its been asked before, but do any of you guys have any recomendations for fitting lipos in the x-ray 007? Maybe some pics of what you guys did.. I'm putting in IP 5000's in it. Also what are you guys doing to get the balance even on the car. Thank you for any help, I'm not new, just not a onroad guy all that much.

I used 4000's, but to fit, I would either:
a. Get a weight tray that positions the battery out from the bulkhead.
b. Grind the bulk head ever so slightly, just so the car has room to flex with the pack in it.
For weight, I just used a weight tray and about 74g of lead balancing weight. A combo of 45 cal slugs and some 14g bricks.

i use a orion 5000mah lipo on my 008 with the xray battery mount, right now i use normal lead weights and 50/50 right to left and front to back utilizing the hudy balancing disc with weight forward of the chassis since i use it for drifting.
there are 3 >1/4oz on front and 4 in front of the battery

These plates from Manutech work really well in the T2'007. You can get them flat or with cutouts for Orion style LiPos with bumps. More info and photos can be found at http://www.manutech.info. They also offer a T2'007 shim kit to raise the upper deck for larger packs.

Another option is this tech article from Nexus Racing explaining how to fit an Orion 5000, or similar sized LiPo, in the T2'007:
