Great battery news, thanks for posting pics. The videos show torment and punishment and the XS seems unphased, good news to see.


I retired from RC, now life is all about guns and long range shooting.

Congratz guys. They even seem to handle a lot better than the bigger brothers. I know my Flux HP can not turn like that without tumbling over. I guess I will have to add one to my shopping list.

Looks like a great truck.

So could anyone carefully measure the battery compartment for me please? Exact dimensions? Well as precise as you can be. I am planing to get one of these guys later on. I have a lot of 2S and 3S batteries that I want to get rid of but would like to keep ones that are good fit in the XS.

Not to worried about the diffs. I still have the slipper clutch in the stock setting.

I was hoping for a little deeper than 47mm. A decent capacity and high C rating 3S might be a bit of a problem. I think I'll be getting rid of all of my current 2S/3S batts and try to find something new to fit the XS. Thanks for the info man and keep us up to date on the trucks reliability. Have fun.

These DO NOT fit, it's a typo... I rushed my purchase, as i have limited time at home nowadays to collect parts (working overseas 4 weeks at a time and only home for 1) and these packs are beyond modding to fit imo... they're too tall....

Have since purchased these 4k packs and am hoping the dimensions listed are correct... being xmas and all tho, i dont think i will receive this package in time, seeing as tho i leave here again on the 29th =(

now i have to figure out what i'm gonna do with the 5k zippys tho? Been thinking about a boat or something anyway Lucky i have 2s packs that will fit for the time being...
