I use a velcro strap from TOP racing, you can find it on amain. It works great and looks even better.

Thanks in advance
Its a pretty thin o-ring. Make sure to put some oil on it before you slide in on the outdrive. If you dont, the o-ring could be "grabby" as you install and it could rip. The diff is awesome and doesnt leak!

Thanks
I bought the Hudy tape ($25 a roll) two years ago and still have 3/4 of the roll left. You can use the same piece for more than one race night. I figure when this roll is empty in 2 more years, it will work out to about < 3 cents a race. One roll of tape will last way longer than velcro straps and it just feels more secure using a nice fresh piece of tape than a worn out piece of velcro.

The TOP strap will work, but can very easily add tweak to your ride. The Puretech Xtreme strap is a much better fit, holds the battery snug while being a bit free at the same time. The TOP strap tends to bind and is easy to pull too tight. The Puretech strap is also thinner and more flexible. The 5 inch strap fits perfectly in a TC6.

Questions?? Help

Need help setting up my tc6.1. Im running tekin rs pro with 2.5t. The car drives straight, but when I punch the throttle the car feels very loose and hooks sharply to the left. I set the car to factory spec with the increase of 2 deg toe in (kind of help). What am I doing wrong.., could it be chassis tweak?

Check your droop to make sure it's even. Also, try 3* of toe, or maybe even more.
