I run the Schelle, like that it goes around my motor/ESC wires a little better.

How did you manage to break a battery strap?

My son ran an entire race with the strap in place but the hold down nuts not there. I'm more surprised that he DIDN'T break the brace.

the schelle does NOT have a back stop. if you move the pack forward, you will need foams. Poorly thought out. If you want an adjustable strap, I would get the Plan B Racing strap. Otherwise, get the exotek.

im not sure but I think it happened when I hit a money pole at our local track...it bent and snapped a small piece off where it slides into the back area by the motor.

Thanks. I'll just order one of the full ceramic kits and be done with it. I'll also make sure I've got my crush washer situation sorted out.
