    Rally Time!!!!!!!!!!

    So after many months of trying to convince myself to buy the conversion parts for my e revo, I heard about doller hobbies and those prices won me over. I have yet to get the arms and I need some suggestions for some good road tires on black wheels.
    I want to get these wheels

    On these rims.

    But just because it looks cool.

    Here is what I have ordered so far, as you can see I am getting an unpainted body and will need some help in painting it. Also pattern suggestions.






    Any help is appreciated!!!

    No wing included with that body.
    Just that you listed it twice.

    The exo carbon one does look really nice tho.
    Those prices are crazy cheap.

    I did a merv to rally conversion also but with hopup parts. I got traxxas cvd already on the merv n got cvd for the rally to do easy swap back n forth.

    Hpi x patterns are awesome for on road. You can also get some cheap wheel/tire combos from fopower on eBay. Sway bars are great to have too. If not just put some shock dampeners to lower your ride and eliminate some of the shock travel. Oh and get the aluminum pillow ball caps...that helps with the slop.

    Well it will give me time to paint the body while I wait. I am thinking maybe an orange and black theme.

    What kind of paint do you guys use?
    Also what is liquid tape, I have heard it is a good alternative to taping.

    Liquid tape is a masking fluid you paint on, and can either peel each mask off, or cut off. It's better than tape, in that you can mask to any design you can paint.

    I have no idea, I still am waiting for the arms to get in stock, the tires are just propped up under the body, they are not connected to anything.
