will an 8-cell battery fit in the tray of a slash? It looks like it will if you take out the foam block and the cells are arranged so
six cells are in the standard position,
one on top in standard hump style,
and one on the end perpendicular to the others.
yes i guess that would work
Yes, I drive an electric converted Nitro Hawk.
it works you can go up to 9 cells with two in the "hump"
there's also a hump pack battery hold down for the slash i do believe..although I don't know where you would find it.. tower hobbies perhaps? I'm not sure..I've just heard of it
Fluttershy is best pony.
I have humps with the factory hold down.
you can fit 7 parallel in the tray and then i guess stack as many as your esc and motor will handle on top. just use velcro straps to hold the battery down. it would be heavy though.
the single humps fit without the straps.... thats all I am trying to say
only if they are unmatched stick packs. if you get the matched parallel packs from promatch or spc then you will need straps.

An 8 cell will fit the slash but the motor won't last long. I burned up a 15 turn Epic modified on the 2nd run. The XL5 also went from bearly being warm with a 7 cell to getting pretty hot with the 8.
As far as fit, yes, the promatch will fit, it's the same 8 cell I have.
Traxxas part #5827X is a higher battery hold down with a taller pin, hold down and block. (20 & 29mm)
thats for some huge hard pack lipo right?Originally Posted by bdh11
I have no idea! Got one for $3 so...
I run 8 cells nimh and 3s lipo.. holds up fine so far. Not too hot, but the weather here is still cold so that might help.. Runs like a champ for me, but i know the 3s lipo really hurts the lifetime of the stock setup..
