Default Strapping Li-Po to Chassis

Dear all,

May I ask from your experience, what is the best way to strap a Li-Po to a car chassis?

Is Fibre glass tape still the best? Or are there other alternatives that can do a better job?

I take Scotch brand double side tape and stick it to the chassis under the battery and then use the strapping tape like I always have. Not had a lipo come out or even move in my car yet. And I have hit some stuff pretty hard.

Double-sided tape, 3-strips of 1/4"x 1", and the Xray battery strap, or tape.

I still use the battery bar.

in my other lipo cars, I have massive strips of velcro for a battery straps plus velcro on both the bottom of the chassis and the battery itself. It's been though a few warp speed cartwheels and it didn't even budge.
