I just cut away a small amount of the molded posts on the bottom of the #3373 battery position pieces and glued them to the chassis at the slots. And they function very well.

To remove/install the battery...I completely remove the two front screws and partially loosen the two rear screws that hold down the Top Deck.

Have previously suggested a redesign of the #3373 pieces (into a u-shape) to include side-to-side bracing for the battery. Also, would like to see more battery positioning holes in the chassis plate to fine tune the fore/aft placement of the 1S battery pack.

CRC is so actively progressive; so, don't be surprised that they come to the IIC with a few new experimental parts for your LE. Frank, Dumper and Team CRC members never cease to amaze me with their creativity.
