    4x4 and I run Sand Paws rear only. Steers a lot better without them upfront. I also found using one of the tray covers is great for keeping the clean up better. I use one of the mesh ones (Dusty...

    Man, I went from a 3800 to a Leopard (I think 26XX something) on 3S and it wheelies on the fly no issue. It's also fast as heck. I think I have either a 9 or 11 T pinion. What gearing are you running?

    Yup, true candies are totally transparent so you will see what's underneath them. Or in the case of RC painting ontop of them. Generally people use some sort of metallic to allow the bling to show...

    Yup, exactly. It is WAY easier to paint on a superficial surface than painting in reverse as the Lexan bodies require. Some of the real top show bodies are actually painted on the outside. Truthfully...

    Thanks man! Sorry though, I'm not up for painting anyone's stuff but my own at this point. It just takes too much time and that's one of the things that's oh so limited in my life right now.
