Default Protecting your chassis

Hey all

How do you guys protect the under side of your chassis? Its not that important but i am about to try a new BCE chassis and want to keep it in good condition if possible. I have skid plates front and rear but is there any sticker coating etc that I can use that works for the whole underside?


cheers

No need..... it meant to be scratch.


No sticker will survive underneath the chassis.

I'm using clear epoxy adhesive such as Araldite, mix them properly and spread it on the chassis about 2-3mm thick, once the epoxy wear out, you can redo it anytime, by peeling off the old one with knife.

Associated Chassis Protective Sheet. Peel and stick. The only issues is cutting out holes once it's stuck down to access the screws. Not a big deal though if you want the protection. Once the sheet is down I put a skid plate for good measure. You might need a bit longer screws for the skid plate with the added thickness of the protective sheet.

J-concepts also makes chassis tape. I find the J-C one more durable, its cheaper and you get 2 pieces over AE's 1 piece. For truggy you will need 2 pieces anyway because the stuff is made for 10th scale. Use an E-xacto knife for the screw holes.
