    Are those 17mm hex rims you got there?? I am trying to get myself a new set of rims and tyres as the others I feel don't have enough weight behind them, so when I am jumping my truck it often flips onto it's roof. I can't correct this with throttling the truck either .
    Rock n Rolla !

    I want to knock out the 6 rectangular panels on the back for heat/parachuting reasons.
    Overall just on a loose mount out of the trimming this is a great looking body and it fits VERY well. the front holes even line up as intended and the rear are in a decent spot too.

    Dont know yet. i have some XXXMain Carbon fiber to use too...

    Gonna talk this one over with my Painter and see what hes comfortable with.

    Still messing around with the holes, trying to figure out the easy way to clear out the vent holes.
    Got the body mounted though. Those 4 holes are easy, getting real good at the body holes.

    Cutting venting is new to me though. Knife/reamer/dremel... no clue.

    Lowered it a hole front and rear. might go a notch lower.


    Also got the rear 6 holes out. not clean at all... i'll have to rethink the louvers and the 2 on the hood.

    You could try body reamer in the corners of the vents, then ream a starter hole for the Dremel, work the Dremel to the corners this would give you nice clean rounded corners.. Steady as she goes..

    Hi guys, I converted my E-Revo to an E-slayer Pro but was not happy with the way the Pro tires look with the Pro shell, too small for its newer larger scale look. I like to be able to fill the wheel wells without having to raised the body too much, any suggestions? I have an extra BL set up from another ERBE that I will eventually install but wanted to see what I could get out of the twin brushed motors, so power will not be a problem.

    I run the 1/8 buggy wheels and tires on mine and love it.

    Nothing on the truck yet aside form the clear ones above.
    I'll get it on the truck tonight.

    IIRC it rubbed on the SC wheels but its fine on the 1/8 buggy wheels which i run anyways.

    Love the paint job! Been wainting to do a camo print on a body myself, and think I have the canidate for it (scalpal body for my slash), just need to do it.
    Your going to want to put something to reinforce the body where you cut out the six slots on back. I got this body when they release them, and I went thro the time of cutting out all the slots/holes. It's held up pretty good minus a few areas where it has cracked.
    You'll see a difference on high speed passes truck doesn't want to lift up and take off for the moon...

    Here you go, what do you think






    Guess my guy ended up free handing most of this shell, as even with dry time galore between colors, he spent more time cleaning it out and redoing it after the mask he was using were pulling up 2 or 3 layers of paint on the overlaps.

    Hi,
    here's mine, the Tekno conversion. I like it! BTW, if anyone interested of a less than a gallo O.S 21tm with NEW piston&sleeve set and a NEW conrod in original packing please PM. Nitro gear (clutch, flywheel, exhaust) & ez-start included.

    I found a pretty good setup for it, like it a lot.
