Default Novak Atom Case...Falls Apart!

Novak Atom Case...Falls Apart! Any good tips for keeping these cases together? This is a new unit (had it in my pitbox forever) and I'll throwing it in a 1\12 scale.

Super glue, tape, etc?

Just run a thin bead of CA glue around the case, then it'll never come apart. I used to do that and then use the tape over it that it came with. Just picked up a coupld GTX's though and they are even smaller than the Atom.

Tape it, if you want to take it apart for some odd reason.

I used Tamiya blue battery strapping tape on mine. That works great and I can still open it for service if I have to

I used black electrical tape or orange vinyl..........once you tape it, it should stay together in onroad........offroad I would use shoo goo to glue so that dirt doesn't get inside.

and the shoe goo would be easyer than ca to take off but holds better than electrical tape.

Novak recommends never use crazy glue on a speed control. The glue & fumes can corrode & ruin the circuits.
