    Rusty Chassis & Battery Question

    Putting together an older Rusty and I have come up with an issue, my Lipos don't fit well and have to be wedged in. Is there more room in the new chassis for Lipos? I'm trying to decide to get a new chassis or just dremel out the one I have.

    Thanks.

    To my knowledge the battery tray has not changed on the Rustler.

    Is your battery too wide or too long? It is pretty easy to knock out the back wall to gain some extra length for the battery.

    Its a little of both (GensAce 5000mha). I'm pretty sure that I can just remove the ribs on the front wall to make it fit. Its just a little snug on the sides, but nothing it is front to back.
