Default receiver mounting question.

this is my first time doing this. quick question. my stock receiver is stuck to the truck. is it usually double sided tape? seems to be VERY strong bond and it doesnt move. is there any solutions/spray etc to remove the receiver from truck to loosen double sided tape?
and when i remount the new receiver, should i be using double sided tape as well? thanks so much

Typically anti vibration, heat proof rubber for mounting receivers in RC Cars/trucks etc.-
Tamiya Heat Resistant Double Sided Tape preferably doubled up..
or in strips:
tamiya #50025 - Double sided Servo tape

To remove receiver, slide a knife between RX &Chassis, whilst lifting a corner, then peel remainder away.
In need, using a hair dyer or similar, whilst lftinga corner,will soften the glue and make removal much easier. Use new tape when replacing the receiver to ensure receiver has as much protection from vibration and shock as possible.
