Talking off the track

how do you pick your car off the track ?
I've seen a lot of racers pick their car off the track with a gorilla grip all over the body.
Im lucky enough coz my tc3 has a rear bumper that I use to carry my car around the track.

I have a nasty habit of picking up my cars by their front bumpers, which may or may not actually hurt the car, but it just seems wrong. What I try to do is roll the car on its side and then grab the underside of the chassis.

Make sure you don't burn your hand on the motor if it gets hot

Shane - What about the rear bumper? The losi xxx-s has a nice "looped" rear bumper... Perfect to put a finger in and carry around the track!
