on many chassis pics I see there appears to be red stick-on foam. What is it and the purpose and where can it be purchased?

You can get it from McMaster Carr and I also think BRP (Bud Bartos) sells smaller strips of it

I was looking at some chassis under TonyP's scratchbuilding section. http://slotblog.net/...mula-1-chassis/

LOL

 

I read it wrong. I read "red stick" instead of "red stick-on". Gotcha.

 

What they said above.

I like it to add small amounts of weight. I also use it to limit pan movement sometimes.

Gary,

  I bought the smallest roll available from MSC. Not red. Black buna. PM me your address and I'll send you some as the roll is more than I'll use in this lifetime.
