    4s-6s lipo mount

    i am currently build a speed slash 4x4 using the traxxas lcg conversion. it has 1/8 scale electronics in it so i plan on using 4s, 5s, and 6s lipos in it.

    the biggest problem right now is the battery mounting. i know that stock mount is far to small to mount a 4-6s lipo.

    do you guys have an idea on how i can hold down such a large lipo while keeping the traxxas chassis?

    any tips/ pics will be greatly appreciated!

    my 4s fits perfectly fine with the batt expansion


    now with 6s you'll probably have to use Velcro straps.

    I think you do. someone here did a Velcro straps and its working out for him. I only run 4s but, when I do go 6s I normally just strap them together, I am not worry about falling out as my rally is set-up only for onroad use.

    Between the extended battery hold down and stock retaining clip you have a number of configurations to hold various battery sizes down...Post #180 has a bit of info on them.

    i ended up making my own mount similar to how yours is. i used a piece of alluminum a battery mount from another company and 6 screws and 6 nuts. i didnt drill any holes in the chassis.

    im putting a coat if primer on the alluminum right now, when its done ill put it together and post pics

    I EAT DIRT Did you dye the a arms and body mounts or paint?

    back to topic...... The Velcro strap idea looks to be the easiest.

    Orca44, Custom dye from RPM. I cut 4 slit's in the side wall's of the battery tray, that is it. Did not take away from the strength at all and was super simple. Total cost for this was $2.89.
