Take a lighter and hold it about four inches from the adhesive side of the tape, then stick it to your esc/recv. Peel the backing off then do the lighter trick to the chassis side of the tape then make sure you know where you want it on the chassis and plunk it down. It will hold like superglue, but when you remove it the tape will peel off the chassis in one piece, then you can peel the tape off the electronic component in one piece as well. Far more secure then velcro, and way more convenient than shoe-goo.
I like that idea im gonna try that one

My solution is Zappa Dappa Doo or better known as Shoe Goo. It holds like cement and you can remove your ESC, RX, or anything just by using a flat head screw driver wedging it between your components and the chassis.
i have to agree, shoe goo is the way stays in place even when i crash,electronics doesnt move...very easy clean up too!!!!

Hey guys,
DO you guys mount your speedo and receiver with velcro tape or double sided tape? The reason I ask is because I want to be able to swap my speedo and receiver from one car to another. I believe that using double sided tape is more secure, but its difficult to remove the components?
While using velcro tape might be less secure, but easier to detach things?
Whats your take?

Thanks
By no means dbl-sided tape and good quality sticky, sh*t just dripping off of it super dope dbl. sided sick sticky tape if you plan on racing, for play go with velcro.

Hell just CA them hoes on, no just kidding, shooey goo is another option that will hold better and the servo can be removed with caution.
