    Clear Body Pix

    Picked up a clear body and painted it for my wife. Comes with limited stickers...no headlights, tailights, or rear fans stickers. More of a race sticker set up...headlight blackouts, race numbers, etc...

    Painted it the single color but left the rear window clear so you can see the esc and fan...

    Thanks Watts...

    Ya know, if you painted it camo, it'd kinda look like a 2 door sport version of a HumVee...

    Nope!


    UGH I was wrong in the first post...they don't give you numbers...just 1 sticker sheet which has the window stickers...the headlight blackouts, the windshield banner, a couple of traxxas stickers.

    Looks great. I can't wait to paint one of my own. No one around here carries the clear bodies yet. Where did you get yours?

    Traxxas is cheap!
    Why would anyone not want the roll cage stickers that's the nice part on the body!!

    They don't include all the sticker sheets in any of the Traxxas branded bodies. What he got with this one sounds standard.

    The additional sticker sheets are sold separately. If they were included, the total package price would be higher.

    There are details on that body that you just can't see with the stock tribal graphics traxxas uses. One solid color looks so much better to me. That would be a must do for me after getting a Slash, shelf the stock body and paint up a clear one with a little bit of graphics, but not a ton. Good job!

    I think New Era has one, but it's even more expensive than the Traxxas body.

    The New Era body is too narrow. It's not as wide as the Slash body, the specs say 10" wide.

    Sucks about the sticker bit, but that's not as important as the body. Nice paint work and kudos for the clear area. Reminds me of what Ferrari did on the F430 (engine under glass).

    The paint does look sweet. My wife would want that color too. I had to get a bug body for her E-Pede, and she wanted pink, but settled for purple.

    The don't sell much (edit: ANY) pink in the LHS's here.... LOL

    I have a New Era Body. Test fit it on the chassis the other day.

    Wheelbase is good, But its narrower than the Slash Body.

    So it looks like the tires will hit the fender well lips in full compression.

    actually, the body isnt sitting down all the way where its supposed to be, the back needs to be trimmed out for the rear bumper, it will in fact sit alot lower, i dont think that this body is suitable for this truck

    You could, but I think they are little bit smaller than the actual windows are. So you would have a bit of over spray where you didn't want it. It would work, but I don't think it would look right in the end.
