Default Battery Box Cover


I've got a Losi 8ight and just purchased a 4 cell LiPo RX pack (2S2P). Unfortunately I didn't check if it would fit in the battery box before I bought it.

It fits in the box ok but I can't get the cover on because of the angled bits for the hump packs. I'm thinking of just taping it down and running it without the cover. Is this a bad idea?

I also may cut out the angled bits of the cover with a dremel, however this will also leave the battery exposed.

Is there any aftermarket covers that you guys know of that are bigger that the standard?

It's 2 cells in series and 2 in parallel, so still 7.4 volts.

I'd be interested in a solution to this as well. It'd be good to be able to run a larger lipo battery knowing it won't go flat in a day of racing.
