I would not recommend gluing the esc into a car! Use double sided tape or if you want too Shoe-Goo!

Velcro??? Again I would not recommend that either. You will be taking too much of risk in the esc coming loose and shorting out or being damaged.

You want the esc to be firmly attached to the chassis.

If you are looking for a way to change it out quicly then use double sided tape (servo tape) just stick it down and you can pull it up and replace the tape in a few secs and restick it.

I use Shoe Goo. If you do get in a bad wreck, your ESC will go flying. Shoe Goo keeps it down tight, and it is easy to pull off. Just get a flat head, slide it in betweed and twist it around. It comes right off. And after you peel the Goo off, there is no sticky residue or anything.

Your LHS should have it. I don't know of one that doesn't... If it isn't there, any arts and crafts store should have it- Michael's, maybe?

never had a problem with velcro. Velcro also adds a little bit of shock absorbtion.

I've never used it. My friend does, and I saw him take a spill, his car was fine, so he drove it back, and the reciever was hanging out the side, catching all the bumps...

Hey if you LHS doesn't have shoe goo try any hardware store. Useally cheaper than Micheal or your LHS.

I used to use double side tape. found Shoe goo clean up nicer than the tape. the only disadvantage of using shoe goo is that it take a bit to cure. So if you in a hurry to get to you main or qualifier I would use double side tape. If your preping your car for the next race day or bashing outhing. then I would go shoe goo.

Try 3M VHB double sided tape. When removing, the tape will come off as a whole, no sticky residue left behind. I use it for sticking servo onto chasis. Very strong!!!

Try WD40 for removing the sticky residue left by lesser quality doublesided tape. The thin Singer machine oil also works. The oil softens up the gummy residue making it easier to rub it off. Once it comes off the chassis, the oil will also prevent it from re-sticking back on the chassis. Clean off with tissue paper then finish up with tissue paper moistened with Isopropyl Alcohol.

WORD None better and holds so nice...Little bit exspensive but worth every penny. It will not let go until you peel it off...it comes off suprisingly easily but sticks like none other...
I had a ESC come loose with shoe goo...but that was off road so really it is up to you....BUT MIP IS THE BEST. PERIOD...

Shoe Goo, wait are you ready for this, you can find it in the "shoe department" at any Walmart!! I guess everyone forgot what it was originally made for, repairing shoes. I prefer the 3m heady duty outside double sided tape used for hanging house numbers and such. That to can be bought at Walmart and is cheaper then buying servo tape. You can find that in the paint section of the store.
