While I've not done so yet with this battery pack in, I've already had the van down and up some pretty grinding, bouncing roads for extended periods..... believe me: I'm building my cabinet frames and everything anticipating some rough riding.My two 4s batteries are in my bumper pull toy hauler (11k GVWR). I get down some rough roads, drive on some highly off-camber roads and look forward to getting into a camping spot that requires 4Lo. I had the opportunity earlier this year to verify that all the screws on my cell terminals were still tight. Only one screw required a small amount of tightening. I'm using no thread locker or lock washers.
Maybe one day I'll take the packs apart and see what the surface between the cells looks like. But based on the screws being secure after all I've put the batteries through, I doubt that I'm going to see any evidence of friction/movement between the cells.
