I agree weezi - the xxx4 SUCKS for holding in batteries. I ended up switching to LIPO, and using a dremel to hack away at my chassis so they would fit. Even after several bad tumbles at the last race, i never once had a battery fly out!

I have broken a couple of the plastic outdrives on the front...
next one will be replaced with rear steel ones.

Had problems getting the slipper adjusted and keeping it tite ended up with red loctite.

ive seen aluminum covers to reinforce the front drives and they seem to work.
we drove a couple of screws up at the edge of the battery tray and had plastic/rubber tips over them and that keeps the batt in.
prior to that i was adding a zip tie and that works but its a pain in tha aaaa

One Loctite tip is to let it dry/cure overnight (12 hours) before using the part if it is a moving part (slipper).
