If you can find it over there, MIP tape is "da bomb" it holds strong, but when you go to take the electronics out, it doesnt rip and tear.
Velcro isn't too thick comapred to servo tape, but I'll look out for the MIP tape. Electronics are that light that CG difference isn't exactly huge the velcro also helped when trying to get rid of interference, could move the receiver from the bottom chassis to ontop of the servo in seconds. Indoors intereference isn't a problem now and everything will be going on the bottom chassis, nice and neat.

We don't have shoe goo here (well it's not easy to get) our shoes are made to stay in one peice
Us Cuda guys don't crash hard enough to need it that secure anyway it also means our one way gears keep their teeth

Velcro for motors you realise velcro is about the same weight as two small titanium screws if anything the screws are lighter...

I think I'll just wait fo reveryone to unload thier R2s and get one a little cheaper than new. Almost $500 for the U.S. special is overkill.

Very true, I'm guessing most people will just update the motor mount and upper deck...
