    Battery expansion question

    Just bought a slash 4x4 platium with the lcg but i cant run it..

    I have a 6400mah 3s and a 8000mah 2s but they dont fit. I forgot to get the expansion kit and wanted to know if the old school kit for the original slash 4x4 work for the lcg chassis.

    what is the maximum thickness or height of a LiPo battery that will fit, using these taller battery hold down? Also, is it a direct install, without any modifications?

    my 4s lipo measures 44.79mm tall and it fits perfect with the tall holddown.
