In short, only the smaller capacity packs will fit without modification (3000 or less probably)

Most people (myself included) hang them over the edge of the chassis and balance the car out with weights if need be.

For info, I use a 30c 5300 2S in my msxx.

The original TRF415 has higher deck that should allow lipo fitment without too much issue. Only the newer MSX and later has the rear bulkhead blocking lipo.

But you shouldn't need to place the lipo too into the bulkhead because you'll end up with an unbalanced car since lipo is very light. Just strap the lipo to the side of the bulkhead makes the car left-right balance better.

Search my name under the For Sale thread. I have one original TRF415 with spare 4mm Chassis (for carpet and high grip track) available, if you want to keep a spare car.
