This car is really good on carpet! No complaints, wouldn't really change anything.

Default Double side sticky tape battery?

I have a new reedy slim that I'm putting in my b5m and as some of you may know that with the battery strap you either have to use foam or cut a notch is chassis brace so I cut a notch and installed it but it still moves. So I was wondering if sticky tape is a good idea to hold the battery in thanks... And I have long charge leads so no need for it to come out all the time

Im getting ready to pick up that battery and plan on taping it down. There are lots of racers that tape even the regular size shorties in. Just make sure to clean the surfaces with alcohol and you can heat up the tape/surfaces to promote adhesion.

I highly recommend the scotch clear 5 lbs clear tape. I tried the 10lbs black and the pack was a pain to get out. way too much effort. The clear offers more shock absorption and holds really well. Just do like Matt said and clean both surfaces and warm up the tape and surfaces with a hair dryer. once you get the pack in, it is nice to put foam on top of the pack and put the strap in. leave it over night like this. it puts pressure down on the packs and tape to help if bond better.

lastly, to assist in the pack not working its way loose, I mount something in front of the pack. I use the cap mounted to the chassis right in front of the packs. That seems to really help. I ran my car like this for months without having to replace the tape.

Good afternoon everyone, I wonder if the asso b5m lite works better than b5m circuits with low grip because here in Spain we have many circuits with these characteristics, thanks and sorry for the translation.

I don't have this battery setup. If I were to try this and had this issue my first thought over tape is Velcro.... If you have to swap batteries taping it would become a pain.

If you already have a b5m with some upgrades, I wouldn't worry about switching over. But if you're looking at which one to get, the lite is well, lighter. So it should perform better for you.

I was sure to clean chassis with motor spray but the only problem is I used the 10lbs tape because it's the only stuff I have but I didn't put the reedy battery In because out of box it was puffed and I have two and my first one the case cracked fro. It puffing after one race day. I guess I got a bad batch😢

meh, who races with 2-3 batteries anymore. It only sucks when you bump and have 5 minutes to charge. what is where 40 amps comes in handy

velcro is thick and will raise your CG. and velcro could cause the battery to "sway".

Studies have shown that racing with one battery all day everyday kills the pack faster than high amp charging...and please, I am NOT here to get involved in ANY battery debates at ALL. I am just passing along info.

I've never really liked Reedy lipos.....and yes I've tried them, I have a couple. I do, however, highly recommend the Trackpower 3250 90C for stock racing. It does just fine for our 7 minute mains.
