    I just gotta say, 4-tecs are WAY underrated. People dont think they are as good as they can be.

    Yep, i know what you mean. You can remove the battery trays and do that, then mount your battery pack on the upper chassis. Either way i think its gonna be the same though.

    Some people use zip ties to strap it along the upper chassis, either on the left or righ side. Thats usually what ppl do when they want to add extra cells too.

    The guy said once he could get it up to top speed it was noticably faster, but the torque was uncontolable. But he didnt have a speed contoler so it was just tap the gas and it goes full rpm.
