All good advice. The only thing I would add is to pay close attention to anywhere they mill the thickness down and exit one edge, like under the motor on a TC chassis. Make sure you get some CA in places like that because thats where they "like" to de-laminate. I dont know if a WGT chassis even has such a feature, but you get my point.

Yeah, but if you have seen the Panda Power chassis treatment you would agree it is worth the time.

Not only does it look amazing, but it protects the carbon. On the chassis it also helps keep the chassis from hooking a edge should it roll over enough for the carbon to contact the rug.

Not to mention its aerodynamically superior.

Super stoked, but have some work to do before I'm ready...


BTW, I don't know how anyone doesn't find a bubble wrap covered interesting.

Default Racing Tonight!

Come, all ye who are free of sin!

And since that would make for a very small field indeed, the rest of you are also invited to tear ass around the dialed carpet track at Hangar 30 in Seattle (in 1900 home to more brothels and opium dens than any other city on the west coast.)

Setup at 5pm. Practice at 6pm. Q1 at 7pm.

And remember, heaven smells like wintergreen
