can you show a pic of how you mount the 3s pack in there??


Thanks

I just have it mounted in the stock location. I'm currently using a 4300mah 3S lipo that is the same size as a standard 2S pack.
My current chassis is hacked all to heck because I used to run some soft case packs that were wider.

What size/shape battery are you trying to fit?

right now running stock 6 cell packs but was wondering how you fit 3s lipo in there . I saw your chassis was modified a bit(lol) to fit just wasn't sure if it was cut that large for 3s packs..

You know, when I bought the Slash's from you and your bro-in-law, I realized they probably saw a little snow judging by the condition of the springs, but holy cow, I think I was off just a bit.

Part way down on page one of this shows a battery cup cut out for a lipo. It's a 2S shown in place on this one, but they make 3S packs in this size as well.
You will need to remove one of the battery spacers as well.

3S pack that would fit in that spot.

thanks for the battery info i saw yours in the snow vid and it scoots along pretty good for stock silver cans. I have hpi 27t in mine & on 6cell nimh 5000mah it didn't seem to have the oomph yours did.

As you can probably guess, Ratchet+Clank is my favorite game series of all time. :)

Well ... it's not everyday I do-up a new body for the Super-Stocker.... actually I've never done a brand-new body for it... :shock:

Unknown body, I think it's a pro-line Tundra body for the t-maxx 2.5 if the writing on the bag is to be believed. :?:
It came with only window masks, no body stickers, so I dug into my stash and came up with this, I was going for a little bit of Ford Raptor with the front-end.

Not sure if you can see it, but the wheel openings are custom-cut to make the wheel base work.
(there are still lines from where I was supposed to cut)

That's an interesting body, and it works very well on that truck. Be a shame to damage it, 8) .

Funny, I feel the exact opposite. I think the body is bland and ugly, it has nothing to do with Andy's paint and decal skills (that part I like :thumbsup: 8) ), it's just an ugly body. To be honest, I feel this way about most lexan shells, which is why I've always preferred the stock hard bodies.
I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

While I will admit that, upon initial viewing, I was not prepared to be a fan of the body, I think its the "different" factor that I like about it.

Halgar, I think one thing is that it's a tradition traxxas style body (and worse) it's for a t-maxx (LOL). I also left the sides kind of long, which I may change in the future, but for now I'll leave it. Hard plastic bodies do look nice, but we all know I'm not a fan of the stock body... :mrgreen: A ford Raptor shell would have been nice, but the price was right on this one (free).

Matt, I do think it works well too... well now that the wheel opening are cut for the clod wheelbase. This body is very much meant to look like the TXT-1 body I used for so long on my original super-clod back in 2010. It will get used (and abused), but not yet. I still need to add shoe goo and drywall tape under there to strengthen all the places that usually crack from abuse. I also plan to make some hard foam bracing to support the body from the stress of lid-landings.
