    I've only seen a deep purple. I don't think you could get the color to match the blue on the arm's. I did black and it look's awesome. Most say to use just half the bag of dye but I used it all and the black is awesome, really dark. I've heard of people trying to lightly sand the chassis then spraying it white. Then dying the chassis. Not sure how well it would work, but....

    you know you can get RPM tower's and arm's in green, black, blue, red, orange, purple, white and yellow? Just goto ebay and search rpm part's. I have a little build I'm doing right now and have some special color's with it. Will post it up later this week.

    Towers: molded in black or white. Other colors are dyed by the seller, not the manufacturer.
    Arms: molded in green, black, blue, or white. Other colors are dyed by the seller, not the manufacturer.

    The RPM blue can be dyed to match the Traxxas gray-dyed-blue.

    Can you dye it green? I think I'll use fluorescent green so it doesn't turn out too dark...
