make sure the edges are rounded off where the tape goes through, then seal it with CA glue...... and use strapping tape. i sometimes put two layers if it doesnt feel secure enough. if you dont know what strapping tape is.. its the tape that has the strands of string in it.

if you can afford it.. tamiya makes some battery tape thats really strong.. other companies offer the same thing too.

Cool, i think he's tried that. he was just wondering how people are setting there's up to use the battery hold down since it seems to high up to touch the batteries after you file the battery slots.

you can cut the posts that hold down the carbon plate shorter. cut or shave off the top portion of the posts.

I installed 2 little "posts" and wrapped them with electrical tape.
then is just use the carbon battery piece that goes on top of the batteries
sorry the pic is a little off focus, but you can see the posts

Use old ballcups to secure the batteries. Works great.
