The cells sit further out than on cars like the 415 etc for the reason you mentioned. It does appear however that they've narrowed the centre bulkhead compared to the previous prototype.

Default Another Tuning Option....

the ability to move cells forward or backward. cell trays means no more filing of the battery slots.

The slots on the battery holder looks offset on the picture. But it could just be the angle of the shot taken...

i think he means that the slots in the tray are offset, so if you flip the tray front to back, itll change the cells positions slightly.... neat idea.

sorry about that bender. the guys are correct. the battery trays are offset. so if you place them a certain way.. the batteries will be 4mm in that direction. reverse it..and it'll move 4mm in the opposite direction.

sorry for the confusion. car debuts tomorrow at the RCX Expo!
