    Easy battery removal

    Guys, I've done a search and couldn't really find anything of assistance.

    I have a green X-Maxx (not that that matters) running the Traxxas 6700mah packs.

    To say they are a snug fit is an underestimation! I don't believe they are swollen in anyway.

    Now add in a Dusty Cover and getting the snug batteries out is a pain in the backside.

    I end up lifting one end then wiggling them out.

    Is there an easier way? Its like it needs tapes under the batteries to pull them out squarely and cleanly.

    Thanks in advance.

    Dump the stock setup and install Spartan battery straps.

    I'm late and new lol but I open the battery thing fully and pull up on battery wire. Pops right out.

    I'm not sure thats the wisest thing to do, i sure avoid doing it as the last thing you want is that coming off in your hand ;-)

    I've opted for using some ribbon, its works a treat and should be standard from Traxxas IMO:
