yes i understand but if you cut out the ballast tank use isopon p36 to fill the inlet slots you will be able to fit a battery lower into the hull im posting my ballast weights position you may find that you wont have to use so much taking into account the battery weight have a look at my posts on this mod hope all goes well good luck and keep on pulling YAAAARG.

The battery i use is a traxxas 8c 5000 mah nimh battery and is alot longer than what your use . mind sets on top of the ballast tray between the 2 blue strips of rc wheel weight .
