Default Ways to Protect Rc Stuff.

Well after posting my thread about my 8ight t 2.0 being stolen out of my truck I see alot of other people are having stuff stolen.

So Post up ways that you protect all your rc stuff. Anything from at your house to transporting and keeping it away from others at the track.


Ill get some pics up soon of what im doing!

You should just leave a picture of a double barrel laying on top of it. If the risk is not worth the reward then it will not be stolen.

Chuck Norris watches my pit table for me when I'm on the track. He's really quite effective.

Same way you protect all your other stuff....Insurance.
You can get homeowners to cover property taken outside the house,
it's about a 100 buck's a year to add on.
