    lipo damaging?

    I have a traxxas 11.1v 4000mah 3s lipo on rustler vxl. When I'm running the battery moves around the compartment and it looks like it is hitting against the esc mounting plate. Is this something to be concerned about? I'm just worried the lipo might puncture.

    You dont want any pack sliding around in the battery tray. I use some non adhesive shelf liner which is like a very thin foam to line the bottom of all my battery trays. This will keep the lip from wanting to slide around and protect it a little. I also use foam blocks to take up any extra space that may be in the try, again just to keep the pack from sliding around.
