    Oh yeah, well i did alot of masking using tape, but i rushed it so it didn't come out the way i wanted. The tape didn't cover the body to well so i got some spraypaint on some places where i didn't want it. And using white as base color wasn't too smart since every little mistake is visible when using white :P

    So my tip to you is just take your time and do not rush it. And if you are going to use more then one color just make sure you let every layer dry to the fullest before removing masks and starting the other color

    Proline Slipstream :P well it doesn't look super bad but if i would had taken more time masking and waiting between layers it would have been much nicer. I will probably get another body and try to make it better and use this one as a bash body xD

    Great choice. Make sure to tighten up your rear shox. That thing produces some serious downforce at high speeds.

    Well at least it looks like my rear get squeezed down lower at high speeds now, then with the stock wing.
    Hard to meassure, as i can not run that fast to apply a ruler.

    You will need to drill them yourself. I used a body reamer. There is a pattern printed on the backside so its not too hard to get the holes even placed.

    Awesome! Im trying to determine weather i wanna get a body reamer or use a drill bit. Im guessing a reamer is smoother?

    If you have a bit, use it.
    A reamer is easier/quicker to get the right size... but is not necessary.

    With RPM knuckles the pivot balls tend to pop out. Only happens when you hit something.

    yeah when you smack a curb on an angle the RPM knuckles let the pivot balls pop out, or when you're going top speed and you hit a pot hole

    today I am going to pick up a cheap soldering iron and electrical solder wire, then get to properly fixing my esc and battery connectors (glue came loose last night after the third run )..

    first I have to go to the dreaded hospital and wait all day to get a spot ... dog bit me a couple of weeks ago, I was wrestling around with him, and now I'm starting to feel pains in my arm

    my steering arm!!
