Our newly designed "Battle Bar" Shorty LiPo Mounting Rails battery retention system has been developed to bring vintage RC10 vehicles into the 21st century! This system utilizes the factory RC10 chassis holes (aluminum pan or graphite) and allows the secure mounting of a "Shorty" LiPo battery mounted in a transverse configuration! The rails slide, allowing for a huge window of weight bias adjustment! Additionally, this system allows room for most ESCs to mount in the center of the vehicle behind the battery in the bulkhead cavity! This keeps your left to right balance in check!
This is the "Factory Team" style Carbon Fiber version, but, for RC10 purists, we have white G10 available as well! Please see our other product pages!
Note: We include 4-40 button head screws with this kit. Why? We understand not everyone wants to mod their valuable vintage chassis! Some of the holes are already countersunk but not all of them. As an option, you may choose to get an 82deg. countersink and address the remaining holes. To complete that mod, you'll need to get qty4, 4-40 flat head screws that are 1/2" long.
Yo! How do I hold the lipo in after I install this awesome piece of technology?
We recommend good 'ole strapping tape! Or for vintage bonus points, a Pure-Tech velcro strap!
