Default an idea i have. would like some input.

hello all, i have a 415ms and i hate having to tape the batts all the time. i had an idea to make a batt bar like i see on so many other cars to hold down the batts. now, do they have one that would work allready made (maybe for a diff car) or do i need to creat my own? and has anyone here done something like this before? any input would be great and thanks in advance for any help.

maybe the bar from xray would fit into thge tamiya ms. however a xray bar shouldn't be in a tamiya car

i saw a bar for the tamiya 414 at ebay germany a year ago...

I've seen people use the XRay T1 inline battery strap. You could probably also use the one for the FK05.

Apparently the 05 Xray strap is too long, you need to use the inline strap from the 04 Xray

Too long is always better than too short....You can always cut some off

I just tried the velcro...don't bother...it also can tweak your chassis....no dice...The Yokomo BD one is nice and you can add some foam if you need to add a little more tention....
Hope this helps,
