The best way I have found to assemble battery packs and still make them easy to take apart is with Shoe-Goo. It holds them together securely but can still be disassembled without damage. Shoe-Goo can be found at most department stores.
when assembling with shoe go i have found it to be best to do it before you do the bars.. i use an old pan car chassis plate. i set the cells on it while glued.. i hve found this gives the perfect cell spacing to fit into cars.. it is also nice because you can keep the cells tight against the grafite so there totally inline..
I Know i am a bad driver!! LOL I just need a good setup and i am sure i can do the rest at the wheel i am not a bad drive it is just a crap setup? I am not a good chassi guy wish i was because i think i could make the A main if i could set the car up good? When can be a aprt of team 595 again?
I Have Not Treid The Shoe Goo. I Cant Find It Anywhere. I Have Been Using Gorilla Glue. They Have It At Lowes And Home Depot. Just Use A Little!!! To Much And They Will Stay Where You Sit Them Down At Forever!! Kinda Like That Old Penny Glued To The School Desk Trick. (man I Hated That)
Bob, First off, Welcome to Hobby Talk, I told you there was info on everything here.
Believe it or not almost every Wal-Mart carries shoe goo. Even most of the employee's have no idea what you're asking for and will tell you they don't carry it. Look in the shoe department in the area where they stock shoelaces and other shoe care products. Usually it's on a freestanding display with other products near the front of the shoe dept. Kmart used to carry it in the sporting goods section but I have'nt seen it in any Kmarts in years.
The Goop Bud(Hi Bud)mentioned is also good or so I've heard but I haven't used it.
And you have new packs to build? :thumbsup: Somebody wants 34 laps in stock huh?
You'll need one with a removeable stem. Make sure your packs are all laid out the way you want them. Just squeeze some shoe goo into the tube, add a little more than you think you'll actully need so it flows out smooth. Make's a nice bead, just like using a chaulking gun. The syringe I use was one I got with diff lube, IRS I belive.
