Traxxas Stampede XL-5 lipo frustration
Calling all lipo-powered Pede owners...
What battery do you use? I have looked and looked and looked to find a lipo that will fit. Only to be disappointed and frustrated!
Ok, some details:
I'm new to trucks. Been flying planes and helis for some time now. Wanted to get my feet back on the ground. Meaning I'm tired of sinking so much money into fixing my crashed aircraft! I just ordered a Traxxas Stampede XL-5 RTR. Naturally, I want to use lipos in it. All my air lipos are 3c so I'm looking for a good 2c to buy. Preferably 5000mah or bigger. I don't have the truck in hand as yet so I'm kinda playing the spec game here.
I understand the battery bay dimensions to be: 136.525mm x 47.625mm x 25.4mm. Can the battery bay be enlarged by a minor surgery? Can a taller battery fit ok or perhaps with help of some hook and loop?
Any help you awesome peeps can give would save my hair from further discoloration over this issue!

Taller is fine, you can space the ESC try and hold down bar up a bit with spacers and longer bolts. Wider and longer won't fly though, it's a molded tub.
