Upgrading the Tamiya battery pack

The journey begins with grinding this thing down.

Then comes standing off the screw holes with spare plastic parts & laminated 1/16" plywood.

After 7 days & a failed delivery attempt, the super expensive $12 of metric screws arrive. 20 years ago, it would have been a matter of running 5 miles to a local hobby shop & spending $2. Now, it takes $12 & waiting a week. This is apparently more efficient.

The threads were different. Ideally they would have been the 1st screws in the holes.

But with a little grinding, they managed to go in without completely stripping.

These modern batteries should easily go 8 miles, but it's going to be a long time before the Tamiya rolls again. Machine vision requires a new board.
