You would be better suited to use the rounded case lipo's. Peak Racing,Duratrax,Reedy,HPI all offer batteries in the round case that will fit the Sprint 2. If I am not mistaken most square hard case batteries under 4000 mAh will fit as well.

i cut a bearing onto the tensioner then flipped it under the belt so as not to rub removed the OE battery wings moved the top plate standoffs to the 6 cell position then clearanced the to plate for the belt to clear and made 2 carbon fiber c plates that mount to the chassis threw the original battery wiing mount locations to keep them from sliding
