The battery pack for the 540r is simple to make.  Please click on the link below to download a 1:1 scale drawing of how the pack is configured to fit into the battery cutouts in the chassis.  It's basically a 3x1 saddle-style configuration, with (3) of the cells mounted right next to each other and soldered together using battery bars and the last cell is soldered with a short wire approximately 13mm away from the other (3) cells.

Here's a quick tutorial on how to build the perfect 4-cell battery pack for your 540r conversion kit.  All you need is a soldering iron, some solder, batteries, wire, (5) battery bars, Deans Ultra Connectors and little bit of soldering skills.

Everybody knows that it's not just about how much power you have but how much weight that power has to push around.  All of the x3 series conversion kits are much lighter than any typical 1/10 scale car/truck, so the power-to-weight ratio with a whopping 540 motor, regardless of turn, is very high for all these kits.  Ultimately it comes down to what you think will be the best setup for you.

This is a simple spreadsheet that uses Excel to calculate predicted speeds given certain criteria such as motor RPM, number of cells, tire diameter, drag, etc.  A must-have tool for any hobbyist.
