Default sanyo 3000hv's

I tried to run some 3000hv's and I had trouble putting the cells in my evo2. Does anyone else have this problem? Will the powers 3300's and the gp 3300's fit or will they be too big?

hv's should fit in fine, Gp's are a bit snug, but still fit in fine. I have not used sanyo 3300's. You just have to make sure that the alumium battery posts are absolutely square on the chassis, somtimes they can rotate out of alignment when building/used.

I have HV, SMH's, Sanyo 3300 and GP 3300. All fit. As stated GP's are tight. Sanyo 3300's are the same size as HV's.

What is asphalt???

You can allways ditch the Xray battery mounting system and just tape the batteries in.
This way the size of the battery won't matter and you won't torque the chassis to get the straps down.

You can try taping the batts down, the problem lies with the batts on the right side. There is no slot to slip the tape through in the rear right.

I use the opening underneath the motor, on both sides for the back and the next forward battery hole for the front.
Hasn't creates any problems for me.

DO NOT USE TAPE, that stuff has to be the most annoying stuff in the world, and it always breaks at the wrong time, like when you are leading a race.

if you need more clearance on the battery straps, you can just add a small washer under the posts to relieve the pressure, the xray straps are the best in the business, dont be stupid enough to get rid of them.

I am wondering if the thickness of the shrink wrap is the problem.....No one here has had problems but me....I will try to dremel the posts a little to see if that helps......I have made sure that they are square on the chassis.. I appreciate the advice.

I have a EVO2 with the C hub suspension. I've had it for about 5 months. Today I found that if I turn the steering full left or right the cvd bone will rub against the collar of the wheel hub. I have the spring steel wheel hubs front and rear. It hits a little more on the right wheel then the left. Has anyone experienced this?

I'm thinking that the cvd bone where it meets with the hub and where the pin sits with the barrel, has worn and have a little more play then usual. I'll find out tomorrow when I check it.

war: It is the droop screws. Raise them to the next # Ex: on C hub front the std setting is 1 mm. Raise it to 2 mm and check to make sure you have negitive suspension travel. ON the C hub there is a new front tower for the smaller foams.
