    Traxxas battery no fit??

    Ok, I got a funny car yesterday. (It's awesome by the way) I tried to put a traxxas 3s in but it appears to be too long. Is there a different size I need or something??

    If you look on the specs it should say battery tray dimensions. If it doesn't fit it doesn't fit. You can try to return the batt or sell it on this forum. Look at hobbypartz.com for other batts, but CHECK THE BATTERY DIMENSIONS I did the same thing on my Slash

    On page 11 of the manual it lists compatible batteries. For 3S it says to use a 2846 or 2849 (with standard height clip) or 2857 with the "tall" clip. I believe all three of these batteries are somewhat shorter than their other 3S batteries.

    I just received my car today... and had the same problem with the battery fitting.. all you have to do is use the taller battery clip you received in the packaging with the car... pull out the battery holder and let it slide in the top slot instead of where it is from the factory... hope this helps
