Tape it in cockeyed. The butt end sticking out will balance out with the motor sticking out on the other side. For the inner servo mount, screw on another plastic servo mount and point it towards the battery. This will keep the battery from hitting the belt. Either that or look for the stick pack conversion kit.

Either mount it away from the center more or shave the right aluminum gear/top deck holder until the battery fits under if you want it more centered. I had to do that to mine with a SMC 5200.

so I guess it's acceptable to just tape it as is?

Because I tried to find kits (amainhobbies) but didn't get lucky.

There are lipo trays that will suit the 415 and locate the battery nice. I ran one for a long time, i think it was ( itty bitty design ) was the brand.

If you look at the tamiya 415 thread there are numerous pages and pics on teh subject.

I recently ran my 415 and with lower race weights now the tray was too heavy.

I removed it and just taped it in with a small weight at the fron to stop it sliding in and hitting the belt. Worked a treat.

But if you are not worried about weight, look for the lipo tray and it is teh best and neatest way of holding in the lipo
