no no no .... detune the contact points.... they are razor sharp from the factory tune...... I would highly recommend it. all due respect. I worked as a tech for 5 years and never sent a new board down the road w/o a hot wax, edge polish and DETUNE... PEACE AND LOVE in the free world. Oh, and most if not all factory hot waxes are ROLLED ON, AND NOT HOT WAXED in... SO, take heed and wax your board, or after your first day. I guarantee it will need it!
