Default T2 008 Battery Question

I just moved to Ohio and I discovered there is a carpet track pretty close by. I have always been a fan of on road carpet racing but it seemed to just fade out with the offroad stuff in Michigan. Anyway, I have an Xray T2 008 EU 6 cell edition that I have not run in years. I was just wondering if it will accommodate a lipo battery with the stock chassis and everything. What size lipo can I expect to be able to fit and is tape still the preferred method of holding down the battery?

I did a quick google search, looks like you can get one to fit if you raise the top deck and maybe remove a little from the rear bulkhead.

Take a look at what i found here

Another option is that companies are starting to release LCG versions of their batteries. With a lower height these lipos should easily fit under the top deck/bulkheads without modifications. Or just look for a battery with height that would allow it to fit.

Shorty packs are an option as well. I ran one in my 008 successfully for quite a while.

I'm using this right now.

Lipo battery mounts for Lipo

It moves the lipo slightly outboard so you don't have issues with the top deck. It does make it difficult to get a driver in to the motor screws to adjust for pinion mesh etc though. Battery tape is a little off centre but I haven't had a battery come loose yet.
