If you run your RC’s off-road, save yourself valuable time by getting an RC Chassis Protector. You’ll spend less time cleaning your RC and more time doing what you love, Driving your vehicle! Keep the dirt and debris off the chassis and away from the electronics.
I have spent a lot of time cleaning my RCs to get the dirt, mud and snow off of the chassis after each run. My RC vehicles spend the a lot of time in the mud and snow, they get completely cleaned off after each run. This usually takes me about an hour to get them fully clean. The chassis can be the biggest chore to clean due to the electronics and crevices.
After I came across the Hot Racing RC Chassis Protector while browsing online, I figured I had nothing to lose and I purchased one. As soon as it came in, I installed it on my traxxas slash. The first run was through the dirt. Not bad, when I opened up the chassis protector cover, the chassis was a bit dusty but was better than running without it.
Once I had it all cleaned up again, to the mud we went. When I removed the body, it looked like a real mess. The mud was covering the protector to the point you couldn’t even tell there was one on. I sprayed the truck all off so it was nice and clean. Then opened the chassis protector, not sure as to what I would see. To my surprise, the chassis was a little wet but no mud or dirt.
My traxxas slash has had this installed for a year now, and I could not be any happier. This has cut my cleaning time down by about half. It now takes me about 30 minutes to completely clean.
The RC Chassis Protector that I use is, the Hot Racing Chassis Dirt Guard Cover for use with a Traxxas Slash 4×4 equipped with the Traxxas LCG Chassis. This cover is for the Low-Center Gravity chassis and will not fit the other Slash model chassis.
The chassis cover is a breathable Nylon mesh to repel water and protect the chassis from dirt and debris. The cover attaches to the chassis with easy to apply hook and loop tape (Velcro strips) and has zipper chassis access.
