Default TP Li-Po Question

I have this li-po. It's got rectangles on the bottom of it like the one in the photo below:



Those of you who are running them in touring cars, are they fitting in the slots cut for Ni-Mh cells, and are therefore a non issue, or do they raise the li-po up? Has anyone tried knocking them off, and smoothing them out with a dremel to get them to sit flush? Would this void their ROAR approval?

Thanks.

If you already have the batteries, why don't you try fitting them in first? No car to try on?

Those bumps were designed to fit in the NiMh slots on the chassis. They'll sit in nicely and no cutting or grinding is needed.

Exactly. I don't have the chassis to test fit the battery in.
