    Got Lipo, couple ?'s

    Got my 2200 2s *********x's today. Wow, the power increase is crazy over the stock nimh! Quick question though, the battery door does snap shut when I run the wires out the back, but the door does press against them. I can either dremel them, which i would like to avoid. Or, could I leave the rear door unsnapped, it sure doesnt seem like the batts would go anywhere. If I do snap the rear door would there be to much pressure on the wires?

    The wires could become rubbed through over time. I just took scissors and snipped a little bit off the ends of both my battery doors. I would also keep both locks latched.

    Had the same issue. Like everyone else said, a bit of trimming is needed. I cut the doors, not the chassis, so that if I ever wanted to I can easily just replace them for like $5, instead of possiby damiging the frame.

    A little grinding around where the battery wires come out with a round dremel bit will do the job. And it looks good.
    I cant stop playing with it !!!
