Ive been using Velcro in my cars for years, for the Reciever and ESC. it sits a bit wiggly in "relaxe-position" (shock resistant )but it holds on like Double sided tape when your trying to take the thing away! actually ripped my brand new Quantum Comp apart when i test fitted it in my Xray last year

i've used some stuff VERY silimair to the 3M double lock mentioned above, it works for getting stuff in & out easily & holds much better that regular velcro.

i don't move stuff for one car to another so i use a 3M product sold at automotive paint supply shops, it comes in different widths, thickness, ect. look for a red & black package. it's used to hold trim moldings, emblems and stuff onto cars.

I've used velcro on a variety of offroad vehicles with no problems. I find that Radio Shack velcro is the best I've tried. For onroad I've only used it for the PT.
To separate servotaped items, I recently found that a small very sharp kitchen knife slices through it very efficiently.

To keep your electronics clean and looking new...put a few strips of electrical tape to the bottom before apply the double stick tape.
Makes it easier to remove and most of the time keeps the Blue on those pesky LRP esc.

Okay here's my solution. Get some good SERVO TAPE, Bolink MIP Trinity all have some but my favorite is BRP. cut the tape to the size of your electrical component. Take a lighter and hold it about four inches from the adhesive side of the tape, then stick it to your esc/recv. Peel the backing off then do the lighter trick to the chassis side of the tape then make sure you know where you want it on the chassis and plunk it down. It will hold like superglue, but when you remove it the tape will peel off the chassis in one piece, then you can peel the tape off the electronic component in one piece as well. Far more secure then velcro, and way more convenient than shoe-goo.

use Rubber Cement thinner...will remove the tape and will not harm your electronics.

Which car are you running it in? Velcro might be ok if you have a tub style TC3 chassis. The side walls of the chassis could help keep it in?

Best thing to do is do what you can till you can afford another set of electronics.

wd-40, vegetable oil, motor oil, bearing oil, anything oily will remove the sticky stuff left from tape, shoo-goo, ect..

yea..but that leaves an oily residue and nothing will stick to it... you'll end up applying somekind of solvent or motor spray...

zombie, you clean the oily stuff with a rag & some alcohol, it'll make the next batch of tape (or whatever) stick better

true...but with rubber cement thinner it removes the tape and cleans the part at the same time.
