    Desert Rat/upgrade Graphics

    My deset rat with upgrade vinyl graphics.

    this desert rat is going to be my second try at a race body. my first choice, manta broke up alot. got a new manta to repaint.

    had to trim desert rat body alot inorder to make proper fit. no paint because no need this body will be my practice body in learning at track until i can perfect my driving skills. i reinforced this body alot. graphics will probably help keep body intact because vinyl is thick. I LOVE THE DESIGN!!!!!! + it looks sick being clear to see the guts of the truck.

    i have a baja bug which i will be painting, will post pics. baja body is real thick .060, this is what all bodies should be like. no need to reinforce at all.

    ^+1, the Lipos are good, it is only the nimh that people have problems with, including me, lol. That body looks great! So were you saying that the Manta broke on you? Or that it is your race body and this is just a backup? I was looking at the Manta but if it seems to break easily than I may rethink my options, haha.

    Kind of reminds me of my K2 Hellbent snow skis.

    Might be true in some cases, but for the ridiculous price, you might as well buy a high quality pack with matched cells from someone like Thunder Power or Max Amps
