Default Caldera 10E Battery Size (Dimensions)

Hopefully someone can help me out.

I just recently ordered a Redcat Racing Caldera 10E. I'm looking to purchase some Lipo batteries for it and was trying to find out the dimensions of the battery box/tray so I didn't have to do any modifications to make it fit.

Can someone with a Caldera 10E measure the battery box/tray and post the dimensions? Very much appreciated.

Also if you have any experience with the Caldera have you noticed any weak links/parts?

I use Lipos from a earthquake 8E They fit perfectly and are hard case. I bought the truck and the lipo's from URCHobby. Got a great deal...

Many lipo packs will fit that resemble a stock 6 cell NIMH pack. Our ACE 4000 packs fit perfect. Here is our recent blog article regarding lipos in the Caldera 10E (my favorite Redcat truck so far): [link]http://hipowerrc.blogspot.com/2010/06/redcat-racing-caldera-10e-with-ace.html[/link]
