Should the strap around the battery be snug?
I'm not very mechanically inclined, but I noticed that my battery for my 08 RXP-X has kinda a black cloth strap around it looking like it's suppose to secure it to the hull if the bolts fail. I'm just assuming that's what it is used for! Anyways, I noticed that it's not very snug. I could probably fit my hand between the strap and the battery... is this normal? If it helps, I can take a picture.

That is normal. The strap is to aid in lifting the battery out after you remove the metal/rubber bracket that secures the battery.

Thanks guys! That makes sense. I don't know why I didn't think of that. Your the best!

your a man, take that strap off and throw it away, it'll give you another 1 mph for lightening your load,. Surely you can lift it out without the strap when you need to change it in 3 more years. Doesn't apply to Jammer 1, he needs a strap to hold up this thimble cup.
