I have this and my rear upper links hit it in the straight up and down motion. In flex they do not.

I also chopped the vertical portion in half and dropped it down further so that its almost touching the top of the rear output shaft.

Wonder how it compares to the Bowhouse battery tray?

I can't say but was considering the Bowhouse one.

I think it sits a little lower, but its pretty cheap and, like i said, my upper rear links on my sport contact it straight up and down. I notched mine to give me some more clearance even.

This is how mine sits in the chassis with a 2200 mah battery:


The red arrow points to the aluminum tab i added to lower the front down to where its just above the rear output yoke of the trans. The 90* angle in the back is roughly where the back of my trimmed tray sits and where the upper links hit.

Here are some other pics of mine:

I also had to cut my bowhouse Mount the same way.

I figured it was from my shock uppers being relocated forward a bit.

I guess not.






I also run 2200 mah batteries. Iím considering smaller ones so I can cut more out.
