Default Electric car tips that you won't find anywhere...

OK, here is my tip for the Snowbirders....

Stop by Home Depot and pick up a 4.0 fluid ounce bottle of
Dupont Teflon multi-use lubricant.....
Use this to put on the bottom of your plastic/graphite chassis.. This makes the bottom of it extremly slippery and when it touches the carpet, no carpet drag what so ever or static........

Then use it to clean you body after a couple of board touches.... Cleans it right off and leaves quite the shine....

so when the chassis scrub the carpet, the lubricant is going to the carpet and making the carpet slippery, is this even legal?

No mess, it's a very clear lube.... You wipe/rub it off with a paper towel and it does not leave hardly any residue. So I don't think it would be illegal? It's like using WD40 but better?
