Default Anyone fit a Lipo in there T2????

Looking at the clearances there is no way one will fit. Xray come out with a conversion grade kit......please!!!!!!! I bought two lipos and they don't fit. Some of the teams guys told me they would fit!

i would not run that on asphalt.you may have traction problems.the car will also be unforgiving if there are any bumps or corner dots.you want to have some flex in the car.i have seen people go as far as running o rings under the top deck for flex.

i went with no wings and the top deck has alot of cutouts.i had jared scott testing it for me down here and he said the flexi top deck worked very well.he has been running it for a while now and really likes it.the car seems to like alot of flex on asphalt.the more rigid top decks like the pickles one and my carpet ones work real good on carpet.i will try to get a pic up tonight of the asphalt top deck for you guys.

The only discussion I've seen on this or other websites requiring LiPo's indicated that the right rear bulkhead would need to be pretty heavily modified.

Weird, but then again its probably my lack of driving skill. But I tried first run almost full soft setting (rubber tire basic setup) on asphault and then started stiffening and it got better for me. The track was prepped with sugar water and I would guess traction to be medium to maybe medium-high. I runn all the screws on the bottom of the chassis, the bulkhead brace, 4 screws in the rear of the front topdeck and 2 (maybe 4 cant remember) in the front. I dont have the stand offs in and I think thats the only thing. White fronts and yellow rears.

looks like you'd need to remove the "nub" directly behind the the cross brace.. i'd be surprised however if some of the other lipos on the market didn't fit as they are a little shorter than the orion pack..

I tried out a buddies car with the full stiff setting on the top deck and with the stand-offs in and it seems more responsive than my car with the basic rubber setup. Im having a constant off power push so I think Im going to try it out this weekend and see what it does. Thanks for the info.

Have you tried high rear roll with antisquat? Maybe a rear sway bar as well?
