The other thing that will get rid of about 25% more reasons to have to use layers, tape the batteries tight. If there is any slack in the tape, when the batteries take out the slack due to track incidents, that momentum is enough to rip the tape, usually at a sharp edge. I follow these rules of thumb and rarely have a tape breakage issue, with only one layer.
Well, the other 50%? Don't hit stuff, and make good passing decisions...
