Default Anything better than servo tape?

Anyone have a good solution for offroad? I keep having my ESC come off because the dirt gets under there - maybe it's the Duratrax brand - what are you guys using?

You can also goto your local Autoparts house and get some double sided mounting tape(http://autozone.com/servlet/UiBroker...EMMM%7C%7Etrue ). This stuff works extremely well.

I haven't had any problem w/ my receiver or esc or transponder come lose my truck. You just need to make sure that each surface is clean and dry.

My favorite is to pick up some velcro tape from wal-mart. It is basicly duck tape with some very good velcro on each side. This allows for easy cleaning jobs when you run on a wet track.
