Awesome RC:s! XO-1!
that's awesome man and did you really get the XO-1 the 100 MPH car that's crazy were would you be able to run that beast for it's true potential????
^^ Ha, Ha Clint!
Lol.....you need help...Lol....great to see you finally got the xo-1.......although it was only a matter of time....great colour dude....looks real slick.....what paint scheme are you going to do for your new body?....
Thanks Buddy! No Idea.... Seriously I may just want a single color. Some times a person has to have a supply of easy to prepare bashing bodies too
Well I'm looking forward to it and I know you wont disappoint
Haha nice one clint! Nice xo-1! So how long until that body is covered in duct tape?

I have an idea if you want to run that body get little peices of metal and then put one on top to protect the top of the body and one on the inside so then you bolt them together and there you go no road burn. I will try to find a pic i saw some one else do it and it looked good
Bodys are meant to take a beating, if you reinforce the body to much itīs going to transfer all that energy somewhere else.
If my body had been reinforced when I did a head on collision with my buddys revo, the shocktowers would have broken for sure!
Bodies are a major consumable, I'm reminded of that after decades of 1/12 & 1/10 on road racing.... I've been through so many bodies in my life
Just to clarify are we referring to the new Jconcepts Raptor body I purchased or the XO-1...?
Currently I have 2 truck bodies to paint for the Ultimate, 3 bodies to paint for the Rally, and 2 bodies to paint for the XO-1.. Thats a healthy backlog Add to that a few planes to assemble and fly... Thats just this one hobby, I need to clone or surrogate myself...
A person can always paint up bodies..., it just takes time
Wow! Thatīs a lot of work!
But seeing your previous work you at least know what your doing, it takes me a whole day to finish up 1 body without a fancy paintjob!
Thanks K1M It is a lot of work, what was I thinking...?
Wow, what an awesome thread! I'm new here, my very first post. I was trying to decide between a Slash Ultimate and an E-Revo Brushless, but I think I'm going for the Slash. I like how it looks like an authentic truck. The Revo now looks kind of odd to me with those giant tires, and small car like body and big wing on the back. Honestly, the beautiful photos in this thread have sold me on the possibilities with this truck. ViperZ, I have much respect for your talent. Please keep up the good work, and thanks for being so generous and detailed in answering everyone's questions and requests!
Too many hobbies, and not enough time!
It is... Good thing I'm not in a hurry
I picked up a few bodies today
L to R, F to B: JConcepts 2012 Ford F250 SD, Ofna GTP, Sweep 1:8 GT, Protoform PF8, and 2 XO-1's
I'm not sure what to paint next for the Ultimate for I have 2 JConcepts Fords, and a Pro-Line Raptor on the shelfs. I think it will be one of the Jconcepts as I want to see how those bodies fit.
Christmas came early for you!!!

Holy bodies batman. I have now realized how fast you can tear through a body when you start bashing hard. I've got a proline flotek raptor body on the way, can't wait to try painting for the first time. Your epic paint jobs have set the bar high hahah.
Now that's what I call inventory......nice one viperZ....you have to at least one fabulous shelf queen out of those sexy bodies...Lol.....
your a very lucky man.....and im sure she is lucky tooooooooooo......
You sure are....Lol....
What a great thread!
