Nothing in the rulebook about stickers on the chassis. ;-) Besides, the process probably added a few grams.

I didn't personally have anything to do with the motor spec, but I would put money on the Jackson TCS race being a factor in that decision. That A-main shocked even me, and I was in it.

Much less offensive that's what I'm thinking most of the time while reading rctech!

Correct me if Im wrong, but how is Hydrodipping is a sticker???
I thought the whole process was actually dipping the product into a chemical
to alter its color.

The word on the street is that Pinocchio's first full-length adult video will be titled "Sticking his Nose into Other People's Business".

This is all probably a digression from the thread subject, unless it is somehow related to "hydrodipping".

Hydro dipping is a film that floats at the top of the water when you pull out what you are applying the film onto. It is essentially a fused decal I guess.

Howard you are definitely good with words.

No chemical process involved. The surface tension of the water is what pushes the sticker into the nooks and crannies of the piece. It's a very slick process! Check it out...

You might be thinking of anodizing, which is not for plastics, but does involve dipping the piece to change it's color, although with a completely different process seen here.

You're probably right Sharpie
I had 4 rims on my 76 Cordoba that I had chromed a few moons ago
and they called that hydrodipping. Actually the company I used was Brooklyn
Hydrodipping! Unless they did other stuff there besides the chroming?

BTW Figured you be down at RCCW today, what gives?

He did a short film while he was in college he's not very proud of. It was called brown noser. He later did an episode of Candid Camera with Alan Funt, where he stood behind people at grocery store lineups and goosed them, utilizing fibs suited to how snooty the person looked.

It's not a digression, btw, because is how he covered all the scars from his short lived job at the pencil sharpener factory.
