    Question Hard Case Lipo Fitment?

    Hi guys,

    I have a question regarding hard case lipo fitment in the brushless E-Revo.

    I have the battery compartment dimensions, and my battery dimensions, all are ok.

    My question relates to the wiring/connectors on hard case battery's:

    Will a hard case lipo with dimensions 138x46x25mm(lxhxw), and 4mm bullet connectors fit without modification of the chassis?

    Wiring will be in 10-16 gauge area(not sure yet)

    Thank You for your time!

    I have the hard case SPC 5200mah they have 10 gauge wire and are 138.5x 46.5x 25 and they fit no problem. Not sure if this helps.

    Thanks for that. it would appear like the SPC's do not have bullet connectors on the topside of the battery though, and this is where i am concerned the problem will be.

    Oh I just realized what your talking about now. I highly doubt they will work. The wires at the bullets would be at a 90 degree bend or the probably won't even fit. Sorry I couldn't help lol

    The wires have to come out of the end of the battery for them to fit. If they come out of the top of the batt, they will not fit.
    Happy Motoring!

    If built correctly, any pack with wires coming out the top WILL fit.

    IYou need low profile 4mm bullet connectors. Though, there ARE fitment issues if your lipo inboard female connector is not deep enough. I have a pair like this

    And I also happen to stumble upon one SMC that had one of the 2 connector that was too shallow.

    Though, when I purchased my e-revo, the previous owner drilled holes on the chassis and vents to pass the male connector through.

    I also use hard case batteries with connectors like those in AusTravis's picture. The wires I use are the low profile 90 ones. I've found the batteries actually fit in better if I put them in upside down (connectors toward the bottom of the truck) because the wires clear the battery spacer thing better that way.

    The curved spacer? I removed those. Most useless thing ever.

    But, I also cut open the vent and fish the traxxas connector through.
