My Rusty VL5 w/ Camero HPI Body
I just finsihed the body. I plan to go back and add some dark orange for some spots for rust/primer show-through to help that places that i've either scrathed through the paint layers to get the tape off and fix areas that I goof on the taping. I'm going to make it more of a madmax beat up look.
I was hoping to get some traxxas stickers for the body but they're too much. No Freebies for advertising I guess. The HPI body took some work to trim up but not much. mostly just around the wheel to make room for bottoming out. I am planning to try it again with teh same body but use the rear body mount from the stampede and mount it to the shock towers which will get me more rear height and thusly keep me from having to cut out the window like i did (ugh). I didn't think of it until I was up at HobbyTown in Concord and one of the pointed out that both have the same shock tower. Great folks. and I still to get a new set of springs for the rear and a 7cell...mwahhhh and yeah
I am using an off set for the front so I could use a 2.2 wheel set, the Pro-Line Dirt Paw 2.2" Truck Tires I got from amainhobby.
