+1 I was going to say that myself.
If it doesn't say it is for polycarbonate, then it will chip. Polycarbonate paints are designed to flex with the body.
Same for me:cool: (roll bar, window trim, and text)
If you use a hair dryer (I do), you can re-coat in minutes. :D This is different for Spaztix chrome paint. No need for a hair dryer, you can quite literally watch the paint dry right before your...
When using P2 rockers, you want a total of 110.8mm or 4.362in exposed metal from rod end to rod end. In other words, you want a total length of 157mm from end to end of the rod.
I actually needed...
I have another hobby that involves me shipping and reciving packages regularly. I sometimes ship and receive as many as 15 packages a week. I only use USPS. Fed Ex and UPS are too expensive and...
looks good, but one is backwards. ;)
I used drawer liner. It's a foam material and has a square pattern. Once you get the right material (I got mine at Wal-Mart) its the easiest pattern to do in the book. :D
I would say about...
Sadly, yes. :(
I really need to get a decent air brush.
I was going to get the Tekno ones for my E-revo, but the 8mm shaft doesn't allow for the use of CVD's. I got aluminum instead. They alum knuckles probably aren't any stronger, but they are shiny....
I thought about that, but my airbrush isn't good enough for that. Its only a Testors airbrush. :o

Thanks. It's only body #10 or #11 for me. :D
Cutting out the lightning with the x-acto knife almost drove me crazy. :wacko:
lol, air brush. ;) Actually, everything could of been done with a rattle can except for the lightning "fog". Only an airbrush could do that.
Ahhh, finally a body for me and not for a customer. :D

I went there today. It is inside of a lawn mower shop (the hobby store owner owns the lawn mower shop) but decided to use the unneeded space for the hobby shop. The "rc section" is a little small,...
How could I of figured out how to adhere the water based paint to the Spaztix on my own? Trial and error would not of shown me this. I must spray the Spaztix 1st otherwise the paint scheme won't...
That didn't answer my original question.......<_<
Snap! I gatto go there. :) Hope they are better that Hobby Masters.<_<
I want to spray some words on a body with Spaztix mirror chrome (oil based). I use a Parma water based paints for all my bodies (love the ease of clean up). I want to spray the Spaztix first but...
Good job. ;) Honestly, much better that the first body I pained. :fear:
Tip: Next time use some pin striping tape for your stripes (can be found at Auto Zone). VERY good results. :)
I like mine. :)
That's exactly what I was thinking. I originally wanted to make it out of carbon fiber, but I would of lost the heat sinking effect.
