Glad you figured it out. It's the opposite of the arrow on your avatar.

Nah, forget that crap. This is what I use for chassis protectors, its 3M scotchrap 51. This will do 100 cars. My roll is used for 4 cars, and it hasn't even started shrinking yet, and I got my roll last year. Its 4" wide, and .5 mm thick... its VERY tough and can be restuck many many times as you lift one end or the other to get to screws.

Also.. i just took a close look at the bottom/back of my chassis, and it's 100% unchanged from when i built the car.

How hard is the surface? Easy to scratch? Slippery?

Hey bro how have you been? Yap love all my Kyosho but its getting difficult to get the 1/8 touring onroad. Might need to go Xray way when come to 1/8 onroad which I really hate to do . The snake brand that I'm using sucks big time with their pastic arms!

When are you sailing to Singapore? Remember to give me a buzz!

Pink fronts, red rear. I know alot of guys are running gold in the rear. I am still running the reds they are working for me. And good luck getting golds if you want them, everyone seems to have them back ordered.
