    Question 3cell Lipo that fits in Stampede VXL 4x4?

    I'm having a tough time finding a 3s Lipo battery that will fit in the battery tray of my Stampede VXL 4x4? Any suggestions? It's the width and length that are giving me issues.....

    Try SMC batteries. Check the specs right on their pages for their batteries. I am pretty sure they have something that will fit.

    Powerhobby, smc. Ditch the factory hold downs and go for straps.

    Somehow builds are never done....

    I just recently picked up a traxxas 3s 5000, new style plug and fits for me. A bit snug, but it did fit.

    The standard hard case packs should work. I used SMC 2S hard case in mine and ended up taking 3 of them apart to build 2 3S packs, but still used the case halves for the top/bottom.

    Also, hobbystar 5200mah 3S soft packs fit.

    Photo's of the SMC 2S 7400mah, SMC 3S 7200mah I made out of older 2S 7200mah packs and the Hobbystar 3S 5200mah soft packs:

    That reminds me, I need to decommission the ones I made as they are getting hard to charge and run time is getting low. I still have 4 or 6 good 2S packs, so will need to fiddle around this winter and tear them apart to make a couple 3S packs again.
    Expert rigging at it's best!
