you could try velcro or thicker foam. i used thick single sided tape one on the battery and two on the battery tray. the two on the battery tray are spaced apart enough that the one on the battery fits in between them and won't slide around alot.

I too have had great success with a bit of velcro stuck on the battery.

Man, the velcro works but then keep''s your batt big. I'd build out with foam and and strap down. I use multiple batts for multiple r/c so having velcro could work on one , but not have clearance on another chassis. Build out to each battery holder to make snug.
