If you are racing on carpet the SpeedMerchant tape works great. For asphalt I use plain old strapping tape. There are some other tapes available, sold as battery tape, but most are basically strapping tape. Wrap it all the way around.

I don't get back for another two weeks. Trust me though, it was either S. Dakota, middle of nowhere Texas, or Omaha, and I'm pretty sure I made the best choice of the places I had to choose from
I would of loved to stay in northern california but now I'll just have to lay the smack down somewhere else

I just need the tracking number so I can tell when it lands in the country. As its never taken more than 24 hours to reach my door from that point I can arrange to be home that day.

I'm getting itchy building fingers.
Still waiting for the tracking number. Was told I'd have the number by U.S Thursday this week. This does not look good when the item itself was supposed to ship last Thursday.

Edit: Received the number this morning and tracking confirms it was only posted this week.

I can see where the mis-understanding was in emails sent back/forth but it's hard to type out. Needless to say it was probably my fault for not making a connection between a couple of them.
