Had no problems with reinforced tape, just make sure to round the edges of little carbon battery holder plates.

Change tape every 4/5 packs to be safe, mainly due to dust when blowing car clean

I went from last in a main to a third place finish because most of the other racers had their batteries fall out, after changing their tape for the main ...Wow....what a waste.....Www
I think I've had a battery fall out once in 20 years.

If you want a shorter wheelbase (1mm) put a 1mm shim at the back of front hinge pin and at the front of rear hinge pin.
Hope this answers your query.

Agreed, any time the battery has fallen out on me it was my fault. OR I got t-boned so hard that the battery isn't my first concern anyway.

Well it depends how short you want it, the shorter would be no shims at all on front of rear arm and at rear of front arm.

then you can have a shim either at the front or rear, if you look at a set up sheet it is fairly well explain, they take the front shim for front and rear shim for rear to give you a spacing measure, then match up another shim on other side of arm so that there is no play.

Where did you get my setup sheet?

There is a total space of 3mm all together, so if you use 1mm (as of setup sheet) then you have 2mm on the other side. It might happen that you need to put a very fine shim (metal) if you have too much play but the arm should be "loose"

long or short wheelbase depends on your track, use shorter wheel base for tight twisty track and longer wheelbase for long fast track.

The setup sheet shows where wheelbase adjustment is. They are not easy to recognize, so I marked it in yellow, so you can see where it is.

Yep we take these positions to set our wheelbase setup and fill the opposite side with another spacer like Sandsurfer showed you.

Well done Jorge !!!
