I plan to run my new chassis at my local parking lot track. Anybody know a good chassis protector I can place on the bottom of it? Don't want to scratch this beaut!

Associated makes a stick on one. I'm running it now. Works well. Although you will need to replace some corners and edges now and then as they wear off.

Do you make holes for all of the screws or do you cover them all? In other words, do you put on the chassis protector before you put in all the screws or after?

You put the protector on after you install the screws. A cheaper alternative than buying the Associated or Losi protector material is a roll of self-adhesive laminating material. A 8 yd. roll of laminating material is about $10 verus a single sheet of protector for about $9. You can purchase laminating material at any office supply store. I'm about to try it. I have been told it works.

yes, after the screws. Don't bother to cut holes for them unless you need to take something off, which is generally not that often anyway.

Good idea on the self laminating stuff - didn't think about that. Might not be a tough but it is cheeper and they are sacraficial anyway.

Well finally made it through all 120 pages and had a couple questions for the Carbon fiber chassis.

The chassis is 3mm and it comes with a 2mm upper deck correct?
The 2mm upper deck should be used for outdoor racing and the 3mm for indoor racing?
How much is the 3mm deck it is not on the website?

Thanks,

number 11,the difference between the G1 and G2 chassis for the nitro tc3 is that the G2 is a little lighter and the newer design of the chassis is a little more open for easier cleaning.the lighter weight causes the car to change direction a little faster.they both have that solid predictable feel.i have won with both of em.

Ray,
looks like im gonna have to put some gold kits together for ya.let me know what ya need buddy.i will have your stuff ready for the end of the week bro.

Jason,

Hey I am easy-just send me any color eTC3!! The Xray 350 is so dialed i think-but I gotta run it back to back with the eTC3 to be 100% sure.

I wish it was that easy for me-I am an addict!!
But seriousely-I have a good $600 or more in FTTC3 parts, kit, tons of shocks, Diffs, bearings,CVD's, hardware, diff cases, bodies..... I could never sell it for what its worth-so might as well have the worlds fastest back-up car ready to go!! I'd shoot myself for selling all that stuff for a huge loss...I already did that with my Pro4. Lost my shirt.
