This pack of batteries is suitable for most small remote control cars, FPV drones, airplanes, etc. Before purchasing, please check whether the size and voltage match the electrical equipment.

FTX Tracer battery tray size: 55*30mm(L*H), if you remove the foam spacer, its size is 60*40mm(L*H). Before buying, check to see if the size of the battery is smaller than this.

If you want to run a different size battery, you can add an extra battery chassis, screw it to the center bracket, and secure the battery with velcro straps. This way you get extra runtime. Ovonic RC car Lipo batteries are reasonably priced and of high quality.
