Lightbulb How to Protect your cooling head

This is a very simple trick that I found in this months one of the rc magazine. First you take a small length of fuel line with a zip tie threw it on you cooling head. Them all you do next is zip tie it to your cooling head. The fuel line absorbs the imp ace very well [I already tried it out]. Hopefully that will save you some money from buying a new xcooling head.

LMAO X2. Don't wreck!

The zip tie trick is a really old one, but it doesn't actually work. The head will still get scratched, and the zip ties can actually dig into the ground and cause much more harm than good. No zip ties through the cooling head please.

I agree with JAMMIN, The zipties only work for a SHORT SHORT TIME.

Best way I have found is to run a wing and body anytime the engine is running..

But no matter what you do it will eventually get a scar on it.. Well, unless you leave it in its box wrapped up.
