Sorry to bust in here! But I'm going to try the stock tape on the 700N. Would a velcro strap help as well? Tight or loose?
Strapping the unit down can help. That's what I've done on my 700N. The poofy pad does a great job of shielding against high-frequency vibrations, but the unit can buzz around on it at certain frequencies (normal mechanical resonances you always have with a loose system). Strapping the unit down will change the frequency of that mechanical resonance (and possibly change the damping factor also) which may get rid of a problem.

I..e on my 700N, the stock pad yeilds a hard drift to the left at higher engine speeds (head speeds around 1800rpm plus). A velcro strap tightened around the unit (enough to smoosh the pad a bit) fixes this partially. Now it only starts to drift when the head speed just gets way, nutty nutty high.

So definitely experiment with a strap if you have any problems.

Honda411- see my post above dated 05-28-2012 09:54 PM. I tried the velcro- it didn't work out for me.

Awesome thanks guys! I guess, i will have to try both and see now! My electric has just the red backing PARMA servo tape.

Just my 2 cents
I have been running the Beast X from day one and have done many testing of locations mounting and types of tape to use. Couple of things to take in account for, balance, location of beast, bearings, and head dampners. The 3m with the red backing is what I use on all 3 of my machines. I have the original beast on my n5C and the 7200 BX on the e6 and the E7. I have found that if you run the beast as close as possible to the main shaft you get the most stability out of it. Insure when it's mounted that it's squared up to the main shaft if its horizontal and insure its very level if your running vertical. There is no need for any Velcro strap to strap it down if you are using the 3M red backing. Keep in mind if you do use the Velcro and one,side is pulled tighter that the other even if it's just a half a mm the beast will drift on you in the direction the beast is leaning. Only my 2 cents and I have tested the Velcro theory as well and it will drift the four corners depending how the Velcro was strapped to it. Enjoy and hope to see all at IRCHA...

Sorry if it seems like more than 2 cents but on a delta flight at 31000 feet killing some time...
