Nobody has answered, I think, because the easiest way is to buy a chassis. You could probably cut a couple of plates to hold the batteries and bolt them to the chassis..but I doub't it would work well and be quite alot of work. Either that or just kinda tape them together in side by side configuration and put them in the rally that way. The stock chassis will accept side by side packs. Might be the best way to go

You can pick up a graphite Pro2 chassis - they are a direct fit...that's the best way to stick a Rally over to saddle packs...

I know that the older 1700's fit in the chassis side by side..The newer cells may be a snug fit, try em
