Sorry but I have never seen one of these tracks in person.
This would be my concern also, I don't believe the plastic piece was designed to hold down the rest of the track. I was under the assumption that the plastic piece was to keep crud out. When installing with screws, they go through the metal and plastic track, not just the plastic track. My concerns would be with the track being held down by the plastic piece, not the tape failing.
