I spoke to Dave this morning and explained that there are only two places at Slotblog where sellers are permitted to market products, which he fully understood based on his experiences on several R/C forums.

That's why this thread has been moved to The Parts Counter.

Thanks for joining the list of Slotblog advertisers, Dave!

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

Placed an order with Dave late last week, got it this morning and installed it a few minutes ago. Wraps are a great fit and should work for pretty much any controller handle, mine being a Parma handle with Difalco internals.

 

Just cleaned up the handle with a clean cloth rag, installed each skin carefully, and trimmed the excess/pressed in the creased areas with a pen cap. Total time from start to finish, about 15 minutes.

 

Short of a custom painted handle, this is by far the best way to add a personal touch to your controller

I need to take a picture of my controller. The quality of the product and ease of installation are second to none. It took me about 5 minutes to install on my Difalco controller.

Damn, that was hard to do!  Took me about 30 minutes to post this!!!

 

But the skins were a snap to install.

Man, I'm going to feel like a back-row wannabe when I hook up my controller - with its simple hand painted design. I gotta get with it.

 

These really are way, way cool! How much are they good for? I need a tenth and a half yet!

Dave has found a way to take anything our minds could imagine and put it on our controllers.

 

Mine is on order.

 

Can't wait.
