I think that both Tamiya and Kyosho used to include them with some of their kits as battery straps. I had the 1/12th 959 that came with them...

Cant you use a regular zip tie and but instead of putting it the regular way put it through the other side so it just slides on and off. But i am not too sure how it holds up, it might just slide off when weight is there.

I've seen them in places such as Radio Shack and Wal*Mart's automotive department.

Problem is, the ones I've always seen (including the ones that Kyosho and Tamiya used to include with certain kits) are always pretty large and not really suited to small wiring applications.

reusable twist ties seem to be fine for me.
