LiPo Shootout – Stock Slash Fit Test
The criteria here were pretty simple, if no modifications were needed for the pack to fit, the higher a pack placed. If modifications were required for the pack to fit, it would finish worse. Luckily, nearly every pack in the test was a direct drop in. We defined “modification” as something more than sliding the battery forward or backward, or more than removal of the stock battery foam.
