    I am not sure if it is RPM quality but if some dye can be added I can imagine making custom bumpers

    If you wish to buy thermoplastic like this in the USA, it is available on the Sears website as "InstaMorph". I've never used it on an rc (summit bulkhead to diffcase filler is a great idea!!!) but I have used it for years as a mold to copy items. I have used another type called "Fast Patch" to fix broken bodies as it is a 4"x10" thin sheet of moldable plastic.

    Here's the links.

    How strong is it really? Considering using it in molds to make A-Arms, etc.

    Okay. Would you be able to make a mold out of the plastic to then use to make the shape?

    How does it adhere to the plastic your moulding it to? Is it sticky? I see the benefits of this stuff in some situations, but if it wont bond to other plastics or other surfaces, its usefulness is really limited. Youd ned up needing to use shoe goo or epoxy or some other bonding agent anyway.

    Don't know...yet but for filling bulkheads
    It would be better if it didn't stick.
    In case for some crazy reason you had to pull the diff out...lol
    It wasn't expensive, looked interesting,for some other stuff as well
    It's reusable and is affected by heat.
    So that will rule it out for some things right off the bat.
    So we shall see what is is capable of
