Thanks Scott for pointing it out.
I will either get the shooter part, or just go back to the stock part.

Take a closer look, the skyline holder's battery plate screws holes are not threaded (at least they are too thin to be):

The reason why we use lock nuts is because they hold the screws without using thread lock which may cause striping of the screws or damage to the aluminum.

But are a pain in the arse if you need to change batteries quickly.

I have never seen thread lock damage aluminium or cause screws to strip. I have however seen operator error cause these problems. Lock nuts dont lock after time. A fresh dollop of threadlock always does the trick.

I would personally be sticking to the stock piece though. That said, there are a couple of the shiny bits I wouldnt mind trying out. Cant get them here in Oz though I believe.

Just think if you are running a bigger race and have to change your battery pack because you bump up and only have 5 mins to get ready for the next heat.
Hey Scott,

That was one of my complaints when installing the part and battery. The solution is to install the battery then drop som CA glue around the locknut to keep it in place for future disassembly and reassembly. So the only tedious part is the first time assembling everything.
