The first one that comes to mind is slightly higher cg if your class has a minimum chassis ride height. You could try g10 sheet as a chassis protector Link and use double-sided tape or shoe goo to attach it to the chassis

If you want to protect your chassis go to Wall Mart and get a roll of clear contact paper. It's not paper. A roll will last you forever. Just cut a piece off and use a exacto and trim. If it gets messed up just replace it with a new piece.. No I would not put weights where you at talking about. put your weight on the inside of the chassis.

I used the 3M bathtub tape for years as we predominantly run asphalt here in the Philippines. Very sturdy and doesn't fade quite easily. Only draw back is that it affects your ride height and droop measurement as it is .5mm thick.

The only reason I got vinyl, is it's black. This is a good option.

How easy is that 3M bathtub tape to get out off the chassis, seems like it uses pretty strong adhesive?

If that is to difficult try my suggestion. The other stuff can't be that difficult to remove.

It's not difficult to remove actually, requires a bit of strength but not too much that it's an inconvenience.

Default Tamiya Protective foil

I have used some 0,3mm Tamiya protection foil (No. 54499) to keep chassis in good condition. (And I don't feel gay or something about that... :-) ) Was easy to apply and cut in shape.

Regards,
Michael
