Hi all.
Does anyone use a Velcro strap? If so what size do you use?
I have tried to use the graphite strap but I'm getting far too much play in the battery and the pinion on the motor is marking my lipo so I've taken the graphite strap off

The majority of racers use battery tape. This gives a very secure fixing without tweaking the chassis. To hold the battery in securely with a velcro strap will require it to be really tight, which will tweak the chassis.

Ok cool. Would this do?

Kind of like tapes it to the chassis?

Yep thats the idea, tape it to the chassis. The tape goes through the slots in the chassis, under the chassis and over the lipo.

That tape is quite thin and has less fibreglass compared to the more expensive stuff, but should be fine if you chamfer the edges of the chassis slots so that they're not sharp enough to cut into the tape.

I use the Hudy tape which is very strong and very sticky. With Lipos costing the best part of £100 per pack it's probably worth the extra cash for some decent tape:

and with that said i cut 2 strips,if you use one long strip it can be a pain to get back off,i have about an inch stuck to the bottom of the chassis each side so you can get your nail under it to remove,and enough to loop over each other on the top of the battery,where the tape comes up from the chassis,make sure you stick it to the ends of the battery,that stops the sideways play,another thing you can do is put a strip of double sided tape to the battery where it touches the nuts/stops this will prevent the battery from rubbing on the pinnion,on my car i have fitted the battery stops from a tc6 as there wider than the nuts

Some years back I had a battery come loose. Since then I have always double taped the battery for race meetings and never had it happen again

My patients have found the Velcro straps to be very easy to use and adjust, especially those with arthritis in their hands. I have appreciated the constant updating to the products with new offerings and improvements to the line every season and look forward to continuing to offer the shoes to my patients for many years.I have been offering patients Orthofeet shoes for 6+ years and my patients, both diabetics and non-diabetic, have found them to be comfortable and stylish.
