I think a graphite chassis is ok, since all i have done parking lot stuff. Sure the bottom gets scratches, with a sheet, they most likely it will be ok. And even if it does scratch... big deal? who's going to look? it definitely will not affect performance. Chances of destroying a carbon chassis is slim, if you are not running anything like a 10T. I run a stock motor and everything's great!

Happy Racing!

I put a sheet of the AE chassis film on my 415 when I built the car. That was 3 season's ago and the film has held up very well. The only spot that has shown any wear is the very tail of the chassis. I won't build another CF chassis without using it.

Sounds like the new car syndrome. You'll get over it after a few scrapes and scratches. There are more dangerous forces at work than a few pebbles scuffing up your chassis.
