The OLD first-generation GP3300s are too big, however. I ran into that myself when I grabbed an old pack for a photo shoot.

Still, when the car went into production, the only (competitive) legal batteries in the US were GP3300s. Given the car's design, I don't think it's a stretch for them to release a car that is geared entirely towards competitive racing and fits the only cell that anybody uses.
Are you trying to say Losi were unaware of the latest generation of batteries, the ones that were IFMAR approved a week after the eventual release of this car?

Fast Freddy.... Sounds awesome.

I got my car a couple of days ago.

I am probably the only one who still had it sealed until 1am this morning (Finals suck)

Anyway I do not have any batts to test fit (of any size ha) so I am waiting until next week to buy some. I have been hesitant to get some 3700 due to not wanting the pain that darkseid has experienced (sorry man).

Hopefully things are looking up. I am interested in seeing some more success stories with the big batts.

In the mean time I will be sanding and CAing. Thanks everyone for all of your pics/hardships/comments.

BTW check out JRXS.net!

Default They fit...3600s that is

My SMC 3600 pack with thin shrinkwrap on the cells fits into the JRX-S with no additional cutting. Don't have a 3700 6-cell pack to test in the car (only have a 3700 four cell pack for my 1/12th scale).

Just completed my JRX-S this morning...It's sprinkling so I cannot do any preliminary testing yet...Killing time waiting for a break in the weather.

Hope the fourth round of the NorCal Touring Car Challenge at Modesto isn't being challenged by the weather.

Got married there in Saint Claire Shores on the coldest day of the year in the snow. Michigan weather is brutal; but, my Michigan bride is a beauty.

Default Wiring

Basically, Todd Hodge's wiring layout with Corally plugs...no soldering with my essential tremor (he, he...).

Those are SMC3600 batteries.

Default No cutting

Absolutely no cutting required for SMC3600 (IB) battery pack.

That's not at all what I said. When the design of the car calls for the battery to be completely sandwiched in it like that, there will need to be some sort of parts switch to accommodate packs of different sizes. Common sense says that. People can't have it both ways, that is one of the dangers of designing a car with such specific dimensions.

I haven't had time to catch up on whats been happening here, but just breezing by the last couple post, it doesn't look exactly like happy hour.

I just hope people aren't blaming Losi for the 3700 issue, cause even with all I went through, I don't.

EVERYONE here knows I haven't been the biggest fan of how Losi has handled this car release, but even I don't blame them for this.

Like I said before, the 3700 cells are HUGE, and accomidating them will take work.

My problem was with the fact that I was being told by company people that what I did wasn't neccesary, while they're admitting they haven't tried it. Thats just doesn't make sense and frankly its rude. That was what my beef was...

But the battery issue itself really isn't all them. Like futureal said, you can only make a car fit one type of cell perfectly. After that, all the other cells will have to be "fitted".

Anyway...tried the car today and heres a couple quick impressions me and my buddy got...

-Wheres the part number to those sway bars! Lot of roll with the kit set up, seems like it will be really good with the sway bars installed.

-Very nice acceleration

-An...'hey this car doesn't have a servo saver!' I couldn't believe that I never noticed it before. First my servo arm slipped on the slines, then later I broke the most unusual part...a bellcrank arm (the short one) so I have some ordering to do.

Overall, it was a pretty nice drive. The conditions weren't exactly suited to a proper evaluation(a little cold) so traction was so...so... I'm going to give it another run in 'hopefully' warmer conditions once my replacement part gets here.

So until I can give it a proper and fair test, I'm reserving judgement.

Can you get a top view of that?
