Home Depot, 3M mounting tape with the 20lb holding weight. Double it up though for shock obsorbtion, it's pretty thin compared to the gel type.

The only thing you'll have a problem with is making sure you can get something under it to get it off! I actually broke a couple tabs on my airtronics receiver with this stuff pulling from the top to remove it. Very strong and + 1 for the doubling it up to help save your electronics.

Best stuff is from depot or Walmart the 3m. But that and the gel type Parma works good but you have to first clean the spot with some alcohol and make sure it's dry then after application let it sit and cure for a little before trying to wire it up and all of it doesn't cure right like any adhesive it'll come off easy but 3 m is more forgiving. Parma stuff I usua let sit over night before wiring up

No argument here. Whenever I get the wild hair to rewire or reconfigure my layout I always cringe when I hear that cracking sound as you're gently trying to slowly lift one corner at a time.

As a demonstration one time I held my entire car by just holding the on/off switch that was attached with this tape. Crazy strong.

Run a heat gun on low a little around it but mainly underneath of it on the chassis once it gets warm peals off pretty easy just don't over do it

Parma Pro Servo tape. It's been on since September with no issues. The Kyosho gel is too thick for the low body clearance

Red peel that statically clings tenaciously to your fingers when trying to throw it in the trash one handed. Stuff is awesome though.

I run the yoshi ball cups. You have to pinch the ball cup with pliers in a few directions to loosen them up. I did it with a ball off the car so i could make sure it was loose

Thanks for the advice! I'll pick some up and give it a try. So once you put it on the chassis, its pretty difficult to remove?

It's definately on there. The easiest way to get it off is to try and roll it off, peeling usually results in the tape tareing.

Ok so I bought a used d413 I put all my electronics in it. Put it on the track and the either the center diff is slipping which has 100k in it or my sensor wire is bad. It cogs/slips when I try to take off from a stop. Once it's going it's good. I checked the sensor wire and it seems to be plugged in tight. Could it be a problem with the center diff?

Cogging is very different from a slipping diff. If you built the center diff wrong enough that it slips, I would expect it to make quite a nasty sound any time you accelerate or brake.

Diff oil weight shouldn't make any difference for what you're describing.

Plugged in tight doesn't mean the wire can't be bad. They can go south for no reason. Could also be a sensor board. The wire is cheap enough to try.
