Default Need help with Battery Strap/Hold down

Hi, fairly new to this forum. Been in the hobby for years though. I'm looking for either a carbon fiber/graphite or fiberglass battery hold down that has a length of 154mm from center of hole to hole and around 2mm-3.5mm thick. If anyone can take the time and measure one they have lying around it would be greatly appreciated! Just need to know what car uses one in that (or close) size.

I found the total length of an associated tc4 strap is 157mm, might be too short though?

why don't you get a piece of carbon or fiberglass and make it yourself, sounds strait forward, otherwise, depending on your chassis, use battery tape, sometime it is better than brace.

I've looked into making it myself but the cheapest I found carbon fiber sheets is around $50 shipped and for more of it than I can currently see myself needing vs paying for an already made $10 job. Might have to go that route, besides custom making stuff is fun! I don't know how well that tape would hold up the way we run and where. I race oval in concrete parking lots mostly, some have spots where you just go airborne and the chassis has a tendency to get nicked pretty good, but thanks for the advice.
