I tried to fit in my Large 9.6v and ironicly, it fits, yet the large to small adapter is what makes it too bulky. Now I was considering getting an 8.4v 4500mAH Battery it's just a little shorter then the 9.6v.... Does that inch really make a difference, cause their almost identicly in size, bulk, etc. except for that 1". I wanted to know if anyone on here uses 8.4v Large Types comfortably (since I noticed the 9.6 put some stress on the hand guard's plastic casing when putting it in.

You can always changed the plug if you know how to do soldering.  You are not limited by Tamiya only.

Eh... I don't know how to solder. I just wanted to know if a generic Large 8.4v would fit (as advertised) on the box  :unsure:

I use a large type battery in mine, with a 2-inch adaptor cord.  I really should convert them over to something else, but to answer your question, yes, it does fit.  If you place the cord right as you slide on the foregrip it barely gives you any problems.

it's a bit tricky at first, but yes, it's entirely possible
