Don't waste you money on those over priced "chassis protectors." A 60x12" roll of clear vinyl will cost ya about $12-15 on eBay.

Did not spend a lot of time looking/pricing, but is this what you are looking at?

Good to hear. Just waiting for my call. I called them on Monday to find where I was on the list and was told they can't give out that information out.

Yup, you're on the right track. I buy larger sheets of the no-name stuff on eBay though. No need to pay the premium for 3M when it's going on the bottom of an R/C vehicle.

Preordered March 11th - "Order is now being picked and packed in warehouse - order can not be canceled!" Didn't get a call, but looks like they are working on shipping it out!
