Darkside. I am having the same battery fitting issues and I am only using 3300's not the larger 3700's. I was going to try taking the shrink wrap off and see how they fit. the pack just doesn't let the battery door close all the way also I noticed the pack doesn't sit in the slots well. If anyone that has runn the car has any info it would be greatly appreciated.

Default Battery Mod

I am off to work, I will post some pics in the morning of my mods when I get home.

Battery sits perfect with a little room to spare. Once you also put the battery foam on the top of the upper deck it is a very nice snug fit.

Later,

Default And the Crowd goes wild!!!

After about 4 HOURS of trimmnig, filling, dremeling and fitting, I finally got the 3700 w/shrink wrap installed.

POOKYT: I'll snap some pics, but you may not like what you see!

It took mods to the rear bulkhead(most extensive), the center aluminum bulkhead(moderate) and to the battery tray(serious mods).

Here are some early highlights to what I did to both inspire and scare the hell out of anyone who has to do these mods.

-Dremel a LOT off the rear bulkhead, while trying not to damage the accentric holder

-Dremel a little off the upper and curved portion of the mid bulkhead.

-Remove the front vertical lip from the battery tray. I basically had to cut the thing off. (It simply wont fit where its supposed to with the larger cells)

-I also cut some slots in my battery foam to keep it from pushing down too hard on the cells...

You know...."slight modifications"...

I'll try to speak more specifically when I get a chance to post some pics.

A lot of work, but...MOST IMPORTANTLY.... this finally got the damn things in there properly....AND my older 3300 still fit just fine.

If theres an easier way to pull this off, congrats to anyone who finds it...

Losi is working on a battery tray to better accomodate the 3700's. For now you will have to go with the mods you guys are doing......

But Robinson Black 64p works great as well.
PRS is also working on a spur gear adapter. Very trick and "simple" piece........ 130 is the largest you can go without hanging below the chassis....... Looks like a table saw blade sitting there~

Has anyone tried to lay the front shocks all the way in on the tower (3rd hole). My shock springs rub on the outdrive in this position.

Rodney B,


YES. You must space the shock out about .060 on the tower and the arm. Use more spacing on the tower and use a spacer between the arm and shock on the bottom....... Might be a little more than .060. Just make sure you do the same on top an bottom.

This HAS to be done when running the front arms in the middle or back. Moved forward "should" clear...

Default Small Issues Need Help

Well I'm getting into BAG "C", and I've encountered a couple of problems and want to see if anyone else is or has worked thru them.

1. The center shaft has a small click when the belts are put under tension. Un-load both belts, and no click. Load either belt and the click shows up. The small spacer is in place between the bearing and pulley.

2. The LCD's: They came pre-assembled.

a. one is completely bound up and does not move freely.

b. the other is missing the piece in which the pin goes thru
inside of the joint. It's just assembled with the pin.

As far as battery fitting,,,,I just did a trial fitting and talk about TIGHT. And they are the GP3300's both newer and older. I am also having a slight issue with the DEANS battery bars being to wide. So if anyone could offer me a bit of advise.

Thanks

I find it strange that some of us are having difficulty fitting newer 3300 in the car. Mine dropped right in without modifying any of the bulkheads. I think the fitment is largely dependant on how well the rear battery slot in the chassis gets shaped. Upon installing the first battery, I mistakenly thought they didn't fit. The foam strips were so firm the battery was bending the tray. I pushed the tray back up flush with the chassis and left it over night. Now that the foam strips are dimpled, all my packs drop in without any issues.

I gotta say, the overall quality is better than I expected and better than any other touring car I've owned. Now if only I could wheel this thing with some skillz!
