I'm getting an XMOD just to entertain....the cat!
Nah, not me. Not at all. What would a 40 year old man want with toys?!

Seriously, will be taping my rears for some cat-baiting drift action!

One thing tho. Good to tape with a slight overlap otherwise there'll be fluff and grit pickup. The overlap should be such that the tape is applied in a uni-directional fashion (when looking at the right side, apply anti-clockwise and clockwise for left side).
So when wheels are rotating forward, the join doesn't push against carpet etc.
