Default CF on asphalt

I really don't want to run the JRXs on asphalt because I really don't like scratching up the CF. What do you guys do to prevent the chassis from getting too much scratches running outdoors? I was thinking of putting button screws under the chassis so the CF will hopefully never hit touch the ground.

Associated sells a protective sheet of film to cover the bottom of the chassis and keep screws and all protected.

Brant,

All too quickly, that film looks worse than a scratched chassis.

Yep, two weeks...he, he...

Bill--I agree but was trying to offer suggestions to prevent scratches. Plus, I raced against a guy with an EVO III last year and he would not race if he ran out of protective fim! LMAO I can't run any of that stuff now after giving him Heck about it all last year.

Or..........Shoe Goo a thin piece of Lexan to the bottom and call it a " Skid Plate". LMAO Uh.....my father in law actually did that to a 10L he rigged up for our local drag racing. He just couldn't stand the scratches!

Just set the ride height at 12mm and you will not scratch it. Well it might still get scratched when you roll over. It will handle like a pig too. Here is the correct answer........... Keep the xxxs for outside and run the XRXS on carpet........lol
