Thats right, its been quite a while since you Losi guys had to worry about that.

I do this:

1. sand it with 350 wet/dry sand paper. (trying to kind of cup it in my hand to give the edges a rounded look)
2. follow up with some 400 wet/dry sand paper, while under running water.
3. clean it up to get anything the running water didn't carry away.
4. use thin CA put a drop on one side of the chassis and let it roll down and around the chassis until it stops. And do this until I've gotten back to where I started.

Thats about it. I think I might try T. Hodges kicker idea. Cause I hate waiting for that stuff to dry.

***Couple things to note to anyone who doesn't already know***
-Do this in a well ventilated area
-Try to make sure you wipe down the chassis BEFORE you start with the CA. The CA fumes make any finger prints on the chassis appear.
-Stay away from the Q-tips if possible. They let off visible smoke when wet with CA.

....oh, and the ever present warning...

Don't glue your hands to the chassis!

Unless Tom A can do some magic with Russ's rain thong ...you'll be needing a set of all weather traded tires.
