Default Gatekeeper bigger battery mounting.

So, being in the UK I don't have access to high capacity small batteries, I need to figure out a different mounting solution, without just putting it on the rear of the chassis.
I hoped to find a servo mount right at the front of the chassis and spin it 90 degrees then maybe put the battery on the servo tray, although it would be a bit high.
What's other peoples solutions, is there a 3d printable part or something to get this done?
The biggest pack I've found I can fit is a Gens Ace 2700 3s, I'd really like 4000+ for trailing as well as crawling.
Anyone help me out with a solution I've not yet thought of?

I remembered seeing this and maybe it’ll help you out. Appears that you need a different mount to put the servo up front but it gives you an option. If you don’t want to mess with that I’d see if there’s a way to mount the longer stock battery tray inline with the chassis somehow.

Not sure how this would or wouldn’t work with the hinged body, but nonetheless:

No you need to use the stock gatekeeper crossmember as this is where the body hinges and mounts to.

I chopped up the long battery box and mounted to the back like in the video. It will add weight to the back. Most of the full size battery would fit. I can post pics later.
