Apply before ever run? Spray on a cloth and wipe chassis bottom?

Shorting out ESC due to static. Seen a few pop now. Hard hit or bottom out, zap!

Cant really see how that is possible, but then again, I never ran carpet long enough to experience these problems myself so I guess ill take your word for it...

Can you add a little grounding wire that drags behind the car like in real cars?

Just open a window to let some humidity in. More conductive air, less charge build up.

A hard hit or bottoming out killed the esc, not static electricity. Then again, board insulation is expensive, and esc companies are cheap bastards.

Then why isn't it affecting any TC's???????????? I didn't have any issues with my aluminum chassis and I don't have one with my CF chassis either. If you had esc issues after an incident; I would be looking at how your electronics are mounted and how well you soldering all your connections.

I just applied it once before I hit the track for practice, and was good after that. I was told it was more of a problem with newer carpet. We just recently switched to new carpet, so I applied it the first night, but haven't since. haven't had any problems.

I was told it was also more of a problem with certain ESC's over others, and pan cars are especially affected (extra scrubbing from the foam tires). I've never had a problem myself, but the can is cheap insurance in my opinion.

Happened on 2 TCs and 2 F-1's, all Orca ESC with aluminum Case. Seeing how it's possible now???? All happened once black carpet switch was made.
