Default Traction rolling - prevent with sidewall gluing

If you're running on-road and dealing with high grip conditions on carpet or asphalt. Check out this video on how to glue your sidewalls to prevent you car from traction rolling.

From the pictures I have seen you are going to sell an anti-tuck product for the rear of the body.
Will they fit the PFM-10?

Note sure. We don't have one to test the fit on. I'll see if i can find one around where i race.

If not we could create a modified design to make one work.

That body really needs one. It's the body tuck king.

A lot of great products made and designed by Helix. The "damper basher" for the Awesomatix line of touring cars is a must have, in my opinion, making shock disassembly and rebuild significantly quicker! The tire gluer is another great too for any black carpet racing!

If you're an Awesomatix driver this a must have. Dramatically reduce damper rebuild and rebuilding the diff.

We've had a few people ask for that now. We need to get a body to test with.

We've had a customer check the Anti-body tuck on a PFM-10. It fits and works beautifully. In fact, the customer just bought 7 more sets. I'll work on posting some pictures tonight.
