I would agree with that. It mostly only happens when running on a hard packed track with sharp edges. You could take the skid on and off for different conditions, but I've just stopped using them. After all what is $100 anyway. Chassis' don't need to be replaced that often even without skids unless you're running on a very abrasive/rocky surface.

Concrete like surface and rocks pretty much sum up my track (video on website below under gallery).

Didn't you just buy one? Why don't you let us know? I think you'll notice a difference. You should anyway. I noticed quite a bit of difference switching to the TFT on my 1.0's.

Default Skids

I make my own skid plates from alum, just look at these pics and make up your mind. If I'm gonna spend $100+ for a TFT chasssis, I'd def run'em!!
