I get it now. I suggest that you just increase ride height until contact is eliminated. If you put in an uptravel limiter (wheel uptravel) on the shock shaft outside the shock, what will happen is when the car gets airborne and lands on the suspension you will break and bend stuff. I try to keep uptravel at a maximum. This is especially good if your track has corner dots or plow disks that you drive over on occasion. I just live with scratches that are caused during crashes, but eliminate all ground contact during normal driving by raising the ride height just enough.

They do make an adhesive clear chassis protective film for the bottom of thechassis. I have seen one case where it removed some graphite from the chassis when it was peeled of to sell the car.

just a sidenote to the uptravel limiting. though, like john s, i try to get as much uptravel as possible, it can tear up one way bearings if anything binds up in the outdrives. kx-one owners here in the states were going through their one ways often in under ten runs. kyosho claims it is our dots, and an uptravel problem.
