Not all tapes are created equal unfortunately. I prefer Hudy Battery Strapping tape. It's spendy, but the adhesive allows the tape to be reused through the race day, and it is very strong.
Another tip is to chamfer/round the edges of the battery tape slots to the carbon doesn't cut through the tape (worst case scenario).
Rest assured, tape has been the standard in attaching batteries for touring cars for MANY years. It's weight penalty is next to nothing, and it also allows the chassis to flex more naturally.
