What I use is actually an XRay FK04 battery strap and it works great, never had a pack come out of the car. Having said that, I have now resorted to using tape, which in some ways is more of a pain in the ass, but maybe i gives me half a tenth!
If you use a battery strap you have no more tweak on that side only on the other side! thats why they use tape!

This new steering is not yet availible! This steering is only for the eye! Because Marc Rheinhard said it to me its just show it doesn't do anything about the grip or steering or something its just a bit more blue! He said that to me!

You have to use the Xenon battery tape damn good tape!
And you have to cut the tape the lenght of your car then your tape is long enough 4 your battery!

And do not need to go through the hassle of drilling some holes in the chassis and stuff....

Just tape it!

Default Tape is better.

I personally use Xenon battery tape (blue of course ). The tape holds up extremely well. In fact I only use one strip for three full runs (2 quals & main) when I race @ my local track.

Looking through my rc stuff, I still have a new roll of blue TAMIYA tape. Checked it out and it still sticks great! Going to use it up this season, hahaha

so this assembly is not a fix for the sloppiness on the steering?...guys any tips to minimize the slop especially on the flanged bearings. I tried super gluing it on the plate to no avail.

Default Is there a new Tamiya coming?

Has anyone heard of a New car coming out? It has RED anodized alum parts vs BLUE. I was thinking of getting a Tamiya but not sure if the 415 MSX is being considered an old version by Tamiya and thus being replaced.
And I don't mean the EVO3 Surikarn edition.
I was also thinking of the XRAY. I have a TC4 now.
