    Keep in mind, that it's likely that these larger capacity batteries will require modifications to the battery tray, and a different method of securing the battery in the battery tray.

    You will also need to purchase the extended battery kit from Traxxas. ( I believe it's about $6); or find another way of securing the larger battery in the battery tray.
