    Dual Battery

    Hi, I was wondering if I could just turn two batteries sideways to make it fit in the the single battery chassis or should I just buy a new chassis if so could you recommend one for a 2wd slash

    I just used Velcro straps when I ran mine on 2 batteries. To keep a little air flowing around both, I ran the straps under the battery hold down, and installed the second battery on top.

    I have tried that with webbing cord that is made for this and it keeps sliding forward. I would also recommend putting a piece of foam or tape over your battery hold down pin to keep the pin from destroying the battery like mine did. since then I have made a simple second battery boy that sits next to the original battery box and receiver, stand the battery up on its side and I have not had a problem since.

    If you are going to run dual lipos in parallel be careful. One may discharge more than the other and by the time you hit the LVC you could possibly damage a cell.
    If you are just looking for more run time, buy a larger capacity battery, would be easier, although not cheaper.
