    I think it's the ProtoForm Tornado. it's the same size as a Rally, so I doubt it would have Revo arms.

    You are right puppa-bear. ProtoFrom Tornado body with traxxas 1/16 rally arms all around.

    Thanks mrtwohands,

    I can give you some tips that helped me get through my first paint job. I hit a lot of bumps when trying to get this project done but learned from them.

    Keep pushing RC's

    Way more complex than my first attempt at painting bodies and it looks great too!
    Does it heat up easy? does not look like there's a lot of ventilation.
    Reminds me I've been wanting to do something with my kid's KB that does not involve drifting.....hmmmm
    There are lots of ways to do that. Most are wrong.

    Thanks photon_trap! I did a run with it for a few minutes and YES the fan kicked in shortly and it got hot. Since then I created a couple of vent holes in the body but I may have to make some more. The body paint was a lot of work for me but blowing my motor and or speed controller will kill me lol.

    Yeah, I am not too in to the chrome thing but that was all the store had the day I stopped by. I might just sand them down ad paint them flat black or white.
