Default Using lipo battery on XRAY T1 EVO2?

I have an old xray t1 evo2 and i'm thinking about running this car again but I need to find a way to mount a lipo battery on this car. Anybody know of any ways to make a lipo fit properly?

The bulkheads are too big to fit the lipo down the side.

I have a T1, not sure which version, and I run the battery across the chassis and taped in place. I'll see if I can post a pic later.

I use the battery struts at the back of the chassis on the outermost holes.

I then use 30mm countersunk screws in the third hole forward on the chassis.

As long as the Lipo isnt too tall (it will foul the belt) it will then easily slide in from the side and be held in place by the front edge of the rear bulkhead and the front screws.

A simple brace plate across to hold the battery down and all is sorted.

(I use the tamiya style lipo's as they have rounded edges and keep them further from the belt.)

Good day!

I have a T1FK04 and have put the battery across the back. Here is a link to pictures of the fan I mounted for the motor but you can also see the battery. I have since gone to an SMC 4100 green carbon for less weight and it also clears the belt.

That's how I have it mounted right now! My only concern was that the car wouldn't be stable like that. Glad somebody used the same technique. Thanks for you input. Did you use velcro strips at the top and bottom?

I used velcrow on the top only to keep the battery as low as posible to clear the belt.
