    Rit Dye other than black

    Has anyone ever dyed their chassis any color other than black and can they post pics if they have them? Thanks. I was thinking about green or red dunno how it would turn out.

    I just found out that you can't trust the liquid because it can go bad. I picked up some liquid sunshine orange, scarlet and cherry red. The orange and cherry red were thick and dyed white rims quickly (7-8min). The scarlet was very thin and the color it produced was a violet-vomit color, rather than a bright red. It must have gone sour or something. lol

    So I ordered some scarlet and tangerine powder - I'm looking to make some bright, red rims. I have some rims that I'm sacrificing to test the dyes.

    You can get a bright blue with Rit Dye. In the photo below (belongs to rubix_cube_mast), rockers were dyed with Royal Blue. I think to match the Traxxas blue, you may want to mix Royal Blue with Aquamarine. I've been studying dyes this past week. lol

    The pic came from this thread: http://traxxas.com/forums/showthread...ng-rocker-arms



    Buttons below dyed with Rit Dye Aquamarine:
