Take a cardboard box that your chassis and parts will fit in. Spray the inside of the box with CA kicker. You can use the pump type of spray or the aerosol type of kicker. You don't have to coat the complete inside of the box, just spray some on all sides and the bottom of the inside of the box. After wet sanding and getting your edges just the way you like them, coat the sanded edges with CA and then place the chassis or parts in the box with the kicker sprayed on the inside, close the box and wait maybe 30 to 45 seconds and remove your part. The edges will not only be dry but they will look like glass!! Speeds up the CA drying process will providing a great finish to the edges. Very neat trick. Thanks Vincent!!

What's CA kicker?

It is a chemical that "cures" the glue in a few seconds rather than waiting for it to dry on it's own.it actually makes the bond much stronger.

All racer should file the edge especially if you run on carpet track. As just a small splinter from your chassis may damage the carpet and I don't think the track owner will be too happy when that happen.....
